Barrie contributed a pair of helpers in Sunday's win over the Red Wings.

EDGE Analysis

Barrie has been great all season long and his consistent offensive production continued against the Red Wings. The 26-year-old now has 16 points in 18 games on the season and is quarterbacking the first power-play unit. Barrie is pretty much an automatic roll whenever the Avalanche hit the ice.

Barrie (upper body) will return to action versus the Predators on Saturday night, BSN Denver reports.

EDGE Analysis

Barrie only missed Thursday's game against the Capitals due to the ailment, and he'll reprise his role as the team's chief power-play quarterback for this tough divisional contest against. The B.C. native's supreme on-ice awareness has led to 12 helpers and 14 points in 16 games this season. There's no reason to leave him on your bench.

Barrie will be unavailable for Thursday's clash with Washington due to an upper-body malady, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Although Barrie is currently bogged down in an 11-game goalless streak, he has racked up 10 helpers over that stretch -- including four earned with the man advantage. The defenseman is averaging 22:23 of ice time -- second highest on the team -- so the Avs could struggle to replace him on the blue line. Nikita Zadorov figures to slot into the lineup in Barrie's absence.

Barrie extended his point streak to four games with a pair of even-strength assists in Sunday's 6-4 loss to the Islanders.

EDGE Analysis

The 5-foot-10 blueliner is up to 12 assists and 14 points on the season, producing at a point-per-game rate. During his active point streak, Barrie has logged six assists, including two in each of his last two appearances. The 26-year-old has been incredibly consistent all year, scoring at least one point in 11 of his 14 games. Friday night's tilt against Ottawa will provide him the chance to push his streak to five games.

Barrie set up two goals on the power play Saturday, with his strong offensive effort helping the Avs eke out a 5-4 shootout road win against the Flyers.

EDGE Analysis

Both of Barrie's assists were of the secondary variety, but it all counts the same for his fantasy owners, and the prolific puck-moving defenseman now has at least one point in nine of his past 10 games. We wouldn't dare take him out of lineups when the Avalanche hit the ice.

Barrie was a minus-4, a team low, in a 7-0 loss Friday to Vegas.

EDGE Analysis

This was a total breakdown for Colorado, and Barrie took the worst of it with his evening. The Avalanche easily played their worst game of the year in Nevada, and things won't get easier Saturday against Chicago. Barrie is normally a good starting option, though, and Friday was likely just a bad situation snowballing out of control for the evening.

Barrie contributed a power-play goal in Friday's 3-1 home win over the Ducks.

EDGE Analysis

This was the first man-advantage point for Barrie this season. He's averaged over three minutes per game in that special teams situation the past two years, and Colorado as a team surprisingly ranks in the top third when it comes to converting power play opportunities. Barrie is starter material in just about any fantasy setting.

Barrie netted the game-winning goal and added an assist in Thursday's season opener against the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

A great season debut for Barrie, who is one of the more productive offensive rearguards around. The 26-year-old manned the point on the first power-play unit and fired four shots on goal. He's yet to truly become an elite d-man, but his strong offensive numbers over the past few seasons make him worth owning in almost all fantasy leagues.

Barrie (leg) is slated to play in a preseason contest or two this weekend, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Barrie has been sidelined for a while due to a laceration to his leg suffered during the IIHF Championships in May, but it appears he's finally ready to put that behind him. Now healthy, he will attempt to improve on a slightly down 2016 campaign, when he notched 38 points (seven goals, 31 assists) over 74 contests.

Barrie, who has withdrawn from the IIHF Championship, sustained a laceration to his leg as a result of wrestling a teammate off the ice, The Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

The mobile defenseman backing out of the tournament is old news at this point, but it's worth noting that he went from having the ambiguous 'lower body' injury tag to the cut and dried 'leg laceration' designation. It's an unfortunate development for Barrie, especially since he still ranks fifth in the international tournament with seven points (two goals, five assists) in three games.
