Avalanche Notes

SEEING DOUBLE: Colorado had a streak of seven consecutive games in which one of its players had a multi-goal effort from Nov. 7-21, a run that tied the franchise record for consecutive games with a player scoring two or more goals set by the Quebec Nordiques from Nov. 24 to Dec. 10, 1983. 

BURAKOVSKY STREAKING: Andre Burakovsky enters Wednesday's game on a five-game point streak. He has registered nine points over that span (5g, 4a), matching his highest point total over any five-game stretch of his career (also: Jan. 15-23, 2017; 4g, 5a).

NOVEMBER TO REMEMBER: Cale Makar has 15 points (6g/9a) in 11 games this month, setting an Avalanche/Nordiques franchise record for scoring by a rookie defenseman in a single month.

Community Spotlight

Avalanche forward Colin Wilson and defenseman Samuel Girard served dinner at Denver Rescue Mission's The Crossing on Monday night as part of the Avs' Do All You Can program. The Avalanche and Kroenke Sports Charities, in partnership with King Soopers, will be collecting canned food and monetary donations at the Avalanche's game on Wednesday, Nov. 27 against the Edmonton Oilers. All donations will be collected at the entrances of Pepsi Center prior to the game and will directly benefit the Denver Rescue Mission. The Denver Rescue Mission provides more than 770,000 meals for the hungry each year, and King Soopers is donating $5,000 in support of the annual Do All You Can Food Drive. The first 200 fans who contribute canned food or monetary donations will receive a voucher for a designated upcoming Avalanche game.

Quotable

"It is pretty amazing, you look back a couple years and I think the support and recognition wasn't as big as it has gotten the last two, three years. It is great to see more goalies wear it, more teams do it and have charities for stuff like that so definitely it is great to help some people." - Avalanche goaltender Philipp Grubauer on the growth of the NHL's Hockey Fights Cancer initiative and the increase in league netminders wearing special masks throughout the month to raise money and awareness
