Mark Olver C COL 9 Months
Mark Olver made a huge argument to stay in the Colorado Avalanche's lineup by scoring three points in the team's come-from-behind 4-3 victory against the Dallas Stars on Wednesday.
Olver had been a healthy scratch since March 5 but his one-goal, two-assist night should keep that from happening again for at least a while. That doubles his season total, as he had just three points in 19 games before this impressive performance. Chuck Kobasew also had a goal and an assist.

In his initial contest Friday night following a callup from Lake Erie of the AHL, center Mark Olver scored a goal and assisted on another in the Colorado Avalanche's 3-1 victory over the Edmonton Oilers at Rexall Place.

"I missed 35 games with a concussion this year, so it was tough, but it's the way it can be sometimes in this game. I just am happy to have gotten a chance again tonight and it went well, thanks to my teammates."
