Ryan O'Byrne recorded a season-high 23:56 minutes of playing time on Wednesday.
The Colorado Avalanche have been leaning on O'Byrne more while Erik Johnson and Ryan Wilson are sidelined. "You know my game. It's not flashy. I want to be hard to play against," O'Byrne said. "Give the puck to the forwards, block shots, kill penalties. Whatever the coaches need from me I do, whether I'm playing 11 minutes or 21 minutes. We just got to start winning some games here." Even with the added responsibility, O'Byrne only has fantasy value in leagues that count hits and blocked shots.
