Avalanche place Cale Makar on injured reserve with an upper-body injury

The Avalanche have placed Cale Makar on injured reserve with an upper-body injury. Makar has already missed three games due to the injury and is now expected to miss at least two more games, both this weekend versus the Anaheim Ducks. Makar is expected to return to action at some point next week, with Monday versus the Coyotes as a possibility.

Makar is one of the best young defensemen in the game. He has one goal and 13 assists in 15 games this season, with half of those points coming on the power play.

The Avalanche are -104 (-1.5 goals) on the puck line, -280 on the money line, with an over/under of 5.5 (-110).
