Jamie McGinn will continue to skate on Colorado's second line.

He will play alongside Nathan MacKinnon and Jarome Iginla, which will no doubt give him at least fringe fantasy value. Alex Tanguay will continue to skate on the Avs' third line, featuring John Mitchell and Dennis Everberg. That won't do wonders for Tanguay's hockey pool worth.

Jamie McGinn scored a power play goal in Colorado’s 2-1 overtime loss to Winnipeg.

The goal was McGinn’s third of the season. The Avalanche have now scored just 20 goals in nine games this season. The Avs have been a bit of an enigma so far. They have so much firepower upfront but have been unable to generate much offense. Colorado now falls to 2-4-3 on the year.
