Fantasy Impact: The good news is Tavares was cleared of an structural damage to his head, neck, and spine after doctors examined him.

Philipp Grubauer has a fantastic 2021 season and was a big reason why the Avalanche finished at the top of the league. He definitely saw more than anticipated ice time as the Avs backup goalie situation this season wasn't the best with Pavel Fancouz on LT-IR, Hunter Miska struggling, and making two trades for Jonas Johansson and Devin Dubnyk. Despite that we racked up 30 wins (one behind Andrei Vasilevskiy), seven shut-outs (tied with Semyon Varlamov), a .922 save percentage (top 8 for goalies with more than 20 starts), and a 1.95 GAA which was second best in the league behind Carolina's Alex Nedeljkovic. Look for him to be drafted as one of the top 5 goalies in 2022.

Mikko Rantanen was Colorado's top dog in scoring for the 2021 56-game season. He picked up the slack when the Avs needed him to and rewarded his fantasy managers with a solid 66 points. He also racked up a plus-30, 34 PIM, 24 powerplay points, 177 SOG, 26 hits and 20 blocks. Keep in mind when you're drafting next year that he doesn't produce very much in peripheral stats like hits and blocks which limits his upside in some leagues. Look for him to be drafted in the middle to late 2nd round next year.
