Coming off their dominant 9-four victory more than the Nashville Predators, the Avalanche are established to comprehensive their two-game homestand towards the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday prior to heading on the highway for six online games. Game dates as well as broadcast and ticketing information to the 2020 NHL Global Series and 2020 NHL Global Series Challenge will be announced when available.

The National Hockey League and the National Hockey League Players' Association, in conjunction with Live Nation Sweden, announced Friday, Nov. 8, that the Nashville Predators will participate in the 2020 NHL Global Series.

The 2020 NHL Global Series will mark the fourth straight year and ninth season overall that the NHL has traveled to Europe to play regular-season games. "It was a great workforce-constructing for us", mentor Jared Bednar stated. "We have guys that have been there and are from there and then to be able to bring our team and show our team around, I think our guys get excited for that". Mikko Rantanen, who is now out with a lower-body injury, is from Nousiainen, Finland, just two hours west of Helsinki. "I remember driving to O2 Arena as a kid to go see the Bruins play the Coyotes back in 2010 for the NHL Premiere games". Rantanen and Donskoi both played in the SM-Liiga in Finland before making the leap to North America. Matt Nieto and Matt Calvert also tallied for Colorado.

Although MacKinnon wasn't needed to finish off Thursday's win - after all, Colorado set a franchise record by scoring six goals in eight minutes - he is an essential piece on a team that is already missing two-thirds of the top line in Gabriel Landeskog (lower-body) and Mikko Rantanen (leg).

"Tenacious on pucks, hard on pucks". "He appears self-assured, taking part in with guys on his again and continue to retains his head up to make plays".
