TAMPA, Fla, (AP) — Colorado Avalanche star defenseman Cale Makar will miss the final two games of a current road trip with a head injury.

Colorado coach Jared Bednar announced the news before the team's game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Makar will also miss Saturday’s matchup at Florida and will be re-evaluated when the team returns to Denver.

Makar was hurt on a check by Pittsburgh’s Jeff Carter on Tuesday night.
