Avs at Oilers: GWG Challenge and GDT, Game #50

Good evening ladies and gentlemen. Your Colorado Avalanche take on the Oilers of Edmonton tonight North of the border. Game time is 9pm ET/7pm in the mountains and can be seen on Altitude and NHLtv. Moser’s radio call will be available as usual from the NHL app and Gamecenter.

The news of the day isn’t good, Nathan MacKinnon will miss the next 2-4 weeks with a shoulder injury. Begin scramble mode. Alexander Kerfoot will take his spot between Landy and Mikko. Matt Nieto is back after missing Tuesday’s game from a shot off the ankle in practice. Semyon Varlamov has been activated off IR in anticipation of a start in Winnipeg Saturday. He will man the door tonight and Andrew Hammond is back to Belleville. David Warsofsky was swapped out for AJ Greer yesterday to give the Avs one each of forwards and defensemen in reserve. That’s a lot of roster moves.

Projectile Lineup

Landy – Kerf – Mikko
Nieto – Carl – Comeau
Wilson – Jost – Compher
Bourque – Toninato – Yak

Big Z – EJ

Lindy – Barrie


Scratch: Greer, Mironov, MacKinnon (UBI)
