Kyle Burroughs Set for NHL Debut


He is a good skater, he is a physical, competitive guy, can move the puck pretty well, had a great training camp for us, and he was in that mix."


Burroughs will be on the third pairing with Jacob MacDonald tonight against the Minnesota Wild and replaces Dan Renouf in Colorado's lineup.


MORE LINEUP NOTES & INJURY UPDATES Goaltender Philipp Grubauer is expected to start in net after winning three straight appearances and going 11-0-1 in his last 12 games.


He can take sole possession of the franchise record for the longest stretch with a point by a goalie, as he currently shares the mark with Patrick Roy (Oct. 23-Nov. 22, 1996) and Peter Budaj (Feb. 24-March 23, 2007), who also had runs of 12 consecutive contests without a regulation loss.


Rookie D-man Bowen Byram was back on the ice again today and is progressing as he continues to ramp up his practice time, but he will not return from his upper-body injury this evening.


The line of Gabriel Landeskog, Nathan MacKinnon and Mikko Rantanen has combined for 49 points (19 goals, 30 assists) and a plus-27 rating in the last 10 contests.
