“[MacKinnon] looked exactly as we’ve seen him,” Avs assistant GM Craig Billington said after MacKinnon’s first practice with the club. “It’s exciting to see him on the ice. He’s just a great addition for us.”
It’s expected that P.A. Parenteau will take up the other spot on what will be Colorado’s No. 1 line.
To recap, Colorado’s top three projected lines to open the season:
Not too shabby.
