The universe apparently decided the Avs had been healthy for long enough.

Nazem Kadri, who has anchored the Avs second line all season and is only bested in goals on the team by Nathan MacKinnon, will be out "indefinitely" with a lower body injury. He was tangled up after a face-off in Sunday's 3-2 victory over Minnesota and twisted his right leg. After attempting to take another shift in the third period, he left the game for good. 

Now, the team will be forced to move forward without him.

In an Avalanche season highlighted by rookie sensation Cale Makar’s fearless dominance and success from all of Joe Sakic’s offseason additions, it’s easy to lose track of Nathan MacKinnon. Take last week’s 7-3 blowout of the conference-leading St. Louis Blues for example. Sam Girard clearly raised his game in an uncharacteristic four-point explosion. The newly-signed defenseman stole the night’s storyline not because he...

Pierre Edouard Bellemare – D Bellemare got beaten for a few pucks along the boards on the game-tying goal, as it came to him a few times and he just got it taken off his stick. In late-game situations, you just cannot have that. Andre Burakovsky – D Quiet game from Burakovsky. He had one rush up the ice in...

Pierre Edouard Bellemare – B+ Bellemare and his line looked really good now that he’s got his long lost brother Matt Calvert back. They pinned the Leafs down low several times and got the Avs momentum whenever they really needed it. The scoring has normalized for Bellemare, but the solid play overall is still there. Matt Calvert – B+ Did...

Pierre Edouard Bellemare – B+ The Avs were a little disjointed in the first period, but Bellemare seemed to be in on half of their scoring chances, including one off a nice feed from Nichushkin. His scoring has kind of gone back to the guy he’s always been in his career, and that’s fine. He crushed it in the face-off...

Pierre Edouard Bellemare – C+ The French veteran was clearly not 100%, as you could tell his energy levels were a bit low in this one, but his line, decimated and all, ended up posting strong possession numbers. The only issue with Belly tonight was getting smoked in the face-off circle, something he’s been getting better and better at this...

While Bednar did not confirm the injury itself,...
