O'Reilly had another quality game, skating 25:30 with over five minutes spent on special teams. He also led the team in shots with five and added two takeaways as well, while winning 76% of his draws. O'Reilly's shootout goal may not count towards his total, but considering he's scored 11 points over his last 10 games, he should be a good bet to stay hot on Saturday.

Avalanche general manager Joe Sakic says that his "intention" is to try to re-sign Ryan O’Reilly.

O’Reilly has one more year left on a deal that carries a $6 million cap hit. Many have speculated he could be a big trade chip during this year’s trade deadline. Ultimately, whether O’Reilly gets moved will likely be determined this offseason. "Ryan is part of our core," Sakic said. "My intention is that at the end of the year I want to try and re-sign him. That will be the goal with Ryan. That being said, we're not going to want that same distraction going on all year next season, either. But he's a guy I want to have here. And hopefully we can work something out this summer." The 24-year-old has 10 goals and 36 points this season.
