Cale Makar was removed from Saturday’s 4-3 shootout loss to the Ducks immediately prior to the end of regulation with an undisclosed injury, Evan Rawal of Colorado Hockey Now reports.
Makar’s final shift of the night ended with 2:57 left in regulation. Colorado head coach Jared Bednar said following the game that the defenseman is “dealing with something” which prevented him from participating in overtime or the shootout. The Avalanche are back in business Sunday night at Los Angeles, and Makar’s status will be of primary concern leading up to the 8:00 PM ET start. Sam Malinski is up with the team in case Makar misses time.
Los Angeles Kings DFS SPIN
Adrian Kempe failed to score a goal against the Capitals on Wednesday despite seven shots on net. Kempe’s goalless streak currently sits at four games, during which he has recorded a combined 12 shots. Last season, Kempe’s longest drought was seven games in late February, so it’s unlikely this slump will continue much longer. The forward faces a tough matchup against Colorado on Sunday, but afterward he’ll see more favorable matchups against Columbus and Montreal on Tuesday and Thursday, respectively.
