Mikko Rantanen News
Colorado Avalanche right wing Mikko Rantanen totaled one goal and two assists for a second consecutive three-point game in Wednesday's 5-1 win against Buffalo. Rantanen has strung together two big performances after being criticized in Finnish media. Following Monday's matchup against Calgary, in which he also had a goal and two assists, Rantanen noted that he was partly motivated by the "lies" written back home. He's returned to form in style and is now close to hitting the 40-point mark for the season, with 14 goals and 23 to his name in 29 games.
Colorado Avalanche right wing Mikko Rantanen contributed a goal and two assists as the team defeated Calgary 6-5 on Monday. Rantanen bagged two of his points, including his goal, in the third period when Colorado turned a 5-4 loss into a win. The big performance, which included a power-play assist at the start of the second period, put a stop to a season-worst three-game scoring drought for Rantanen. It was his first three-game run without any points since October 2022. The Finnish forward is one of the most consistent scorers in the league and has proven it in 2023-24 with 13 goals and 21 assists in 28 games.
Colorado Avalanche right wing Mikko Rantanen had a hat trick of assists and scored his fifth goal of the season when the team continued its perfect start to the campaign with a 7-4 triumph over the Islanders. The Islanders tried to become the first team to defeat the Avalanche this season and battled well, but Colorado overpowered them in the third period, with Rantanen's goal ending up as the game-winning marker. It's been quite a start to the season from Rantanen, as the Finnish ace already boasts two four-point performances and has totaled 12 points in six outings.
Colorado Avalanche right wing Mikko Rantanen (lower body) returned to practice over the weekend and feels ready to go for opening night. The Avalanche start the action Wednesday in Los Angeles. Rantanen was forced to sit out a preseason game last week after picking up a lower-body injury. However, it appears that it was only a minor issue. The Finnish forward played in all 82 regular-season games last season and had his first 100-point campaign with 55 goals and 50 assists. He's set to open the season on the top line with Jonathan Drouin and Nathan MacKinnon.
