Avalanche hold MacKinnon out of skate

The Colorado Avalanche held Nathan MacKinnon, the first pick of the 2013 NHL Draft, out of the team's morning skate Friday due to a hip flexor.

MacKinnon wasn't scheduled to play in the team's preseason game Frday against the Los Angeles Kings.

According to the team, a predetermined schedule has MacKinnon set to be in the lineup again Tuesday against the Dallas Stars.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
