Grubauer will start Thursday against the Devils.

Tonight he takes on a Devils team that has started the season 4-0-0 while averaging the third most goals per game (4.25) in the NHL.

The Avalanche have claimed Marko Dano off of waivers from the Jets.

Dano was a first round pick (No.27 overall) in 2013 but had just two goals and one assist in 23 games with the Jets last season. A deep lineup in Winnipeg forced Dano to play a third or fourth line role, but he could get a bigger chance with the Avalanche, who are devoid of middle-6 wingers.
