Colorado Avalanche News


Andrighetto (lower-body) will be back in the Colorado lineup on Friday.

Andrighetto has missed the last six games with a lower-body injury, but will replace Matt Nieto on the Colorado fourth line. Andrighetto has moved up and down the lineup this season so don’t be surprised if he sees some middle-6 ice-time during the game. He has just one goal on 12 shots in six games this season.
