Cody McLeod remains one of fantasy hockey's best penalty minute contributors.

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.

The Colorado Avalanche have been impressed with the play of Cody McLeod.

McLeod is a tough customer who brings a lot of energy to the Avs' lineup. "He's the guy you want to go out to battle with. He's the guy you want on your team," Landeskog said of McLeod. "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."
