Colorado Avalanche Player News: Last 24 hours, All Positions

News: Grubauer will defend the home net versus the Canadiens on Wednesday, Ryan S. Clark of The Athletic reports.
Impact: Grubauer will take on a Habs team that has gone 6-4-0 in the past 10 games without much direction one way or the other in a tightly contested Atlantic Division. Still, Colorado's chief backup will need to watch out for Max Domi, in particular, as the 23-year-old wunderkind leads Montreal with 33 points (14 goals, 19 assists) through 34 games.
News: Kerfoot (upper body) was a full participant at Tuesday's practice, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports.
Impact: Now that he's been cleared for contact, Kerfoot appears to be on track to return to action Wednesday against the Canadiens, but official word on his status may not come out until Colorado takes the ice for pregame warmups. Assuming he's given the green light, the Avalanche will be happy to have Kerfoot back in the lineup against Montreal, as he's been a solid source of secondary scoring this season, notching four goals and 18 points in 30 appearances.
