Colorado Avalanche defenceman Cale Makar will miss the next two games because of an upper-body injury, according to Mike Chambers of the Denver Post.  

Makar skated with the team in a non-contact jersey Sunday but will not travel on a two-game road trip beginning Monday in St. Louis, head coach Jared Bednar told reporters

Makar has missed the last three games with what is believed to be a shoulder injury. In 29 games so far this season, Makar has eight goals and 20 assists.

Defenceman Erik Johnson will also miss the upcoming road trip with an upper-body injury. As a result, defenceman Anton Lindholm has been recalled from the AHL's Colorado Eagles.

Colorado will return from their road trip on Thursday when they host the Carolina Hurricanes.
