MacKinnon out three weeks for Avalanche with lower-body injury


Nathan MacKinnon will be out three weeks for the Colorado Avalanche with a lower-body injury.

The center played 20:40 and had two shots on goal in a 4-2 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday.

“Give or take three weeks,” Avalanche coach Jared Bednar said Wednesday. “Happened in the game the other night.”

MacKinnon has scored 10 points (one goal, nine assists) in eight games, tied for the team lead with forwards Gabriel Landeskog and Nazem Kadri. He missed the first two games of the season while in NHL COVID-19 protocol.

Colorado hosts the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday.
