DENVER (AP) — The Colorado Avalanche will be without forward Jonathan Drouin for their first-round playoff series against Winnipeg due to a lower-body injury.

Drouin got hurt when he tripped in the second period Thursday against Edmonton.

He skated off the ice and didn’t return.

The 29-year-old Drouin turned in a career season with 56 points after signing with Colorado as a free agent over the summer.

Drouin was typically on the same line as Mikko Rantanen and his good friend Nathan MacKinnon.

The Avalanche practiced before leaving for Winnipeg.

Game 1 of the series is Sunday.
