Cody McLeod registered a goal and fighting major in Sunday's 3-2 win against Minnesota.

"We wanted to come in and get two points and the boys played well, coming off the back to back," McLeod said. "We're in a heated rivalry. I'd say this our main rival right now. Stuff happened last game but we came out to battle and our main goal was to get two points, and we did that." McLeod was fined by the league for entering the game on a legal line change for the purpose of starting an altercation the last time Colorado played the Wild. He hit Mikael Granlund and fought Charlie Coyle in that contest. On Sunday, he dropped the gloves with Chris Stewart and scored his sixth goal of the season. McLeod ranks second in the league with 172 penalty minutes.

Cody McLeod will play on a line with Ryan O'Reilly and Gabriel Landeskog on Saturday.

McLeod is getting this opportunity because Nathan MacKinnon (foot) is out for the rest of the season. McLeod is a great source of PIM with 167 penalty minutes in 64 contests, but he hasn't done much offensively (nine points). He should be worth owning in standard leagues as long as he's playing with Landeskog and O'Reilly though.

With 76 PIMs this season, McLeod stands first on the Avalanche and tied for third in the NHL with Antoine Roussel. Only Derek Dorsett (77) and Steve Downie (135) have more penalty minutes than McLeod. This should not be a surprise as the tough Avs' winger has not finished lower than 20th in the NHL in any season since he became a regular and has two top finishes.

"He's not fun to play against but certainly the guys want him on your side of the trenches. It's testament to his character and who he is. He's got one of the toughest jobs, but yet he goes out there and does it year in, year out, day in, day out. He's a leader, and guys follow him."
