He's been streaky in the early portion of the season, enjoying a four-game point streak from Oct. 12-19 followed by a four-game scoring drought and then a six-game point streak from Oct. 29-Nov. 14. He was held off the scoresheet in back-to-back contests before registering an assist versus Dallas on Monday and he followed that up with his two goals against Vancouver, so perhaps we're at the start of another extended point streak.... See Less Avalanche's Artturi Lehkonen: Adds another two assists Lehkonen recorded two assists in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to Vancouver. Lehkonen extended his point streak to eight games. He has six goals and 16 points in 18 contests in 2022-23.
Girard missed Colorado's previous six games because of the injury. He has a goal and four points in 12 games this season.

See Less Avalanche's Cale Makar: Extends goal streak to three games Makar found the back of the net in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to Vancouver. Makar is on a three-game goal scoring streak.
