Avs may have Rantanen back for playoffs against Calgary
Rantanen has been sidelined since suffering a lower-body injury at Dallas on March 21. Rantanen is second on the team with 87 points and third in goals with 31.
The right winger wore a red, no-contact jersey Monday at practice. Avalanche coach Jared Bednar said after afterward that Rantanen has been “progressing like just we hoped” and that he could be a potential player for Game 1 in Calgary on Thursday night.
