Avalanche D Makar (lower body) out vs. Kings
Makar missed the final 2:57 of the third period and overtime in a 4-3 shootout loss at the Anaheim Ducks on Saturday because of a lower body injury.
Makar leads the NHL with 27 assists, and his 34 points is tied with Vancouver’s Quinn Hughes for most by a defenseman.
Avalanche coach Jared Bednar did not know if Makar would miss more than one game.
“That’s all I know for now,” Bednar said.
With Makar unavailable, rookie defenseman Sam Malinski will come into the lineup for his second career game.
