Barrie suffered a MCL injury on the play and will consequently miss the next 4-6 weeks, according to the Denver Post’s Adrian Dater. In other words, the Avalanche would need to go very deep into the playoffs for Barrie to even have a shot to return.

Guys, Cooke not being a repeat offender under the CBA only really has an impact on his forfeited salary. He still has a disciplinary history
