McLeod closed out the regular season with a goal, four shots on goal and six hits in Saturday's win over Chicago.

A good final game for McLeod, who finishes the year with seven goals and 12 points in 82 games. Most of his fantasy value came from his time in the penalty box, as his 191 PIM were second most in the NHL. He's never surpassed 20 points in his career and is a career bottom-six player, so don't expect anything to change anytime soon.

McLeod will skate on the Avs' second line for the game in Columbus on Saturday, Terry Frei of the Denver Post reports.

McLeod will fill the void created by the injury to Nathan MacKinnon, and skate alongside Gabriel Landeskog and Ryan O'Reilly in Saturday's matchup against the Blue Jackets. It was not stated as to whether this will be a lineup used for the remainder of the season or just a temporary fix for the game against Columbus.

McLeod was dinged for 17 PIM in Saturday's loss to the Wild.

A spirited outing from McLeod, who now has a whopping 167 PIM this season -- second-most in the NHL. While he's only produced nine points in 63 games, the 30-year-old piles up the PIM, making him worth owning in deep specialty leagues.

McLeod was named first star of the game Saturday, collecting 30 PIM in a win over the Stars.While he was held pointless, the 30-year-old contributed four shots on goal and five hits in 8:58 of ice time. McLeod, who has eight points in 56 games, now has 140 PIM on the season -- second most in the NHL. He doesn't produce much offense in a bottom-six role, but the 30-year-old's whopping PIM totals make him worth owning in very deep leagues.

McLeod (leg) suited up for Tuesday's game against the Blackhawks, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.

Considered questionable heading into the contest, McLeod experienced no issues during the pregame warmup and was given the go-ahead to play. He'll assume a spot on the Avs' fourth line.

McLeod is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Blackhawks with a leg injury, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.

McLeod has suited up in all of the Avs' previous 39 games this season, but looks in real jeopardy of having to miss his first contest. The Avalanche will likely reassess his condition in the afternoon before making a final call on his status. If he's unfit to play the Avs will skate 11 forwards, while Zach Redmond enters the lineup as a seventh defenseman.

McLeod scored his third goal of the season in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Blue Jackets.

McLeod had just one point since Nov. 26 entering Sunday's contest, but he was able to pick up a goal on one of his two shots on net. The 30-year-old won't add much offensive production, but his 85 penalty minutes are the second most in the league.

McLeod scored his first goal of the year, added his first assist, went plus-2, collected two PIM and dished four hits Thursday against the Islanders.

A nice and easy game for McLeod, who'd (rather typically) collected 26 PIM, but no points over the first 10 games of the year. Don't expect too many offensive outbursts like this from the 30-year-old winger, whose main value lies in his toughness.

The Avalanche signed McLeod to a three-year, $4 million extension Monday.

The veteran winger provided five goals and eight assists in 71 games last season, and the Avs decided it was enough to warrant an extension. He'll likely continue to be a bottom-six forward this season.
