Colorado Avalanche forward Nathan MacKinnon is expected to miss one-to-two weeks with a lower-body injury, Avs head coach Jared Bednar told reporters Wednesday.

MacKinnon, 24, left a Monday night game against the LA Kings during the second period.

“He leaves the game, I’m concerned right away,” Bednar said after the game. “I know that he wasn’t good enough to come back in the game tonight, so, yeah, I’d say that is concerning.”

MacKinnon leads the Avs in scoring this year potting 35 goals and 58 assists in 93 games.
