Top Mikko Rantanen News

  • Avalanche's Mikko Rantanen: Scores in OT loss

    Rantanen scored on one of his six shots in Sunday's 4-3 overtime loss to Vegas.

    Now at 41 goals and 103 points through 79 games, Rantanen is one of the most electric forwards in the league. He averages more than a point per game, but his pace has slowed in recent weeks. In his last nine games, he has two goals and seven points. For most forwards, that's not a bad run. For Rantanen, that's below average.

  • Avalanche's Mikko Rantanen: Good to play Saturday

    Rantanen (concussion) will draw back into the lineup Saturday versus Winnipeg.

    Rantanen, who has missed the past two games, has 40 goals and 102 points in 77 outings this season. He is projected to skate on the second line alongside Valeri Nichushkin and Casey Mittelstadt, which is a departure from his standard role on the top unit with Nathan MacKinnon. The Avalanche's new assignment for 27-year-old Rantanen likely reflects a desire to balance out their offense before the postseason.

  • Avalanche's Mikko Rantanen: Cleared to absorb contact

    Rantanen (concussion) has been cleared for contact in the lead up to Saturday's matchup with Winnipeg, Evan Rawal of Colorado Hockey Now reports.

    Rantanen needs just three more points to match his career-high point total from last season (105). The Finn skated in a second-line role at Friday's practice and could be set to fill that spot in the lineup once given the all-clear to play.

  • Avalanche's Mikko Rantanen: Probable for Saturday

    Rantanen (concussion) is likely to return for Saturday's tilt against Winnipeg, Ryan Boulding of NHL.com reports Friday.

    Rantanen has missed the Avalanche's last two games because of the concussion. He has 40 goals and 102 points in 77 appearances this season. Although Rantanen typically serves on the top line, he's projected to instead play on the second unit alongside Valeri Nichushkin and Casey Mittelstadt. Colorado might be experimenting with splitting up Nathan MacKinnon and Rantanen in an attempt to spread out their offense ahead of the playoffs. Even if Colorado goes through with that plan, MacKinnon and Rantanen should still share the ice on the power play.

  • Avalanche's Mikko Rantanen: Won't play versus Wild

    Rantanen (concussion) will not be in the lineup against Minnesota on Tuesday, Evan Rawal of Colorado Hockey Now reports.

    Rantanen is expected to begin skating with the team, which could open the door for him to return to action versus the Jets on Saturday, though he hasn't been officially cleared. In his last 12 outings, the Finnish winger has racked up nine goals and nine assists, including five power-play points.

    Rantanen departed Friday's game against the Oilers with an upper-body injury after taking a hit from Mattias Ekholm, and he'll remain sidelined Sunday versus Minnesota. Per coach Jared Bednar, Rantanen skated Sunday morning and is day-to-day while in concussion protocol.

    Rantanen had three assists Saturday in a 7-4 win over Nashville.

    Rantanen hit the 100-point milestone for the second straight season -- he's the sixth player to reach that mark this year, and the Avalanche forward is the sixth player in franchise history with at least two 100-point campaigns. More interestingly, Rantanen has delivered 60 assists for the first time in his career. The Avs triple threat of Rantanen, Nathan MacKinnon and Cale Makar have been fantasy forces all season, and they all traditionally perform out-of-this-world in the postseason. All three are among the all-time NHL leaders in career points per game during the playoffs. Four words: money in the bank.
