The Avalanche have acquired Jacob MacDonald from the Panthers for Dominic Toninato.
MacDonald had one goal in two games with the Panthers last year but spend most of the season in Springfield (AHL). The 26-year-old led all Thunderbirds’ defensemen in goals (14) and points (43) in 72 games. MacDonald is likely headed to the AHL to start 2020 as well.
The Avalanche acquired Andre Burakovsky from the Capitals for Scott Kosmachuk, a 2020 second-round pick and a 2020-third-round pick.
Burakovsky was picked No.23 overall back in 2013 but has yet to top 40 points in five NHL seasons. In his defence, Burakovsky has never played more than 13:50 TOI/gm, so the Avalanche will see what he can do for them in a larger role. The 24-year-old has tremendous speed, a great shot but had just 12 goals and 13 assists (25 points) in 76 games a season ago.
The Avalanche have acquired Kevin Connauton and a 2020 third-round pick from the Coyotes for Carl Soderberg.
Connauton appeared in 50 games with Arizona last season, posting just one goal and seven assists (eight points). The blueline is crowded right now in Colorado, so look for Connauton to serve as the No.6/7 defenseman for most of the 2020 campaign.
The Avalanche signed Pavel Francouz to a one-year contract.
Francouz just finished his first full professional season in North America, going 27-20-1 with a 2.68 GAA and .918 SV% in 49 games with the Colorado Eagles (AHL). The 28-year-old Czech netminder also appeared in two games with the Avalanche, stopping 33 of the 35 shots (.943 SV%) he faced in 61 minutes of play. Francouz is expected to start the 2019-20 season with the Eagles.
The Avalanche signed Adam Werner to a two-year, entry-level contract.
Werner, 22, was a fifth-round pick (No.131 overall) in 2016 and is coming off of a strong campaign with Farjestads BK Karlstad of the Swedish Elite League, going 15-9-0 with a 2.02 GAA, .926 SV% and three shutouts in 26 games.
Calvert (upper-body) will not play in Game 6.
Calvert missed Game 5 with an upper-body injury and will miss his second straight game on Monday. With Calvert out, Sven Andrighetto will be scratched this time around and the Avalanche will dress Patrik Nemeth as a seventh defenseman.
Grubauer will start Game 6 vs. the Sharks.
Grubauer stopped 37 of 39 shots in Colorado’s 2-1 loss in San Jose in Game 5. The Avalanche and Sharks have alternated wins and losses in this series and the Avalanche will need that trend to continue if they’re going to stay alive and force a Game 7. Grubauer has stopped 59 of 62 shots (.952 SV%) in the two games at the Pepsi Center in this series.

Calvert (upper-body) is a “good possibility” to play in Game 4.
Calvert missed Game 3 with an upper-body injury he suffered late in Game 2 but head coach Jared Bednar expects him to play in Game 4. In seven postseason games, Calvert has tallied three assists while averaging just over 13:30 TOI/gm.
