Tyson Barrie scored at the 11:42 mark of the third, but ultimately failed to stem a 3-2 loss to the Vancouver Canucks Monday night.

Barrie scored only his second goal of the season in the loss and reversed a trend of 18 games without finding the back of the net. Despite a lack of goals, he has been productive in recent weeks, however, and now has a five-game streak in which he scored at least one point.

Tyson Barrie had eight shots on goal in Colorado's 6-0 loss to Toronto on Thursday.

That's actually the second time this season that Barrie has taken eight shots and still failed to score with the first time coming on Oct. 29 against Arizona. He's up to 79 SOG this season, but still has just two goals.

Tyson Barrie picked up another helper during Tuesday's 4-3 loss to Nashville.

Which gives him helpers in three of his last four games. With 10 assists and 12 points in 24 games this season, we'd say he's quite legit.

Tyson Barrie has accounted for nine points through 20 contests this season.

"I feel like I've played well," Barrie said. "There are obviously things where I'd like to contribute more, but that comes with the team, and I think we're starting to go a little bit, starting to score some more goals." He scored just one goal in his first 20 games last season and finished with 13, so fantasy owners shouldn't panic over his two goals so far in 2016-17. Barrie is working hard to take care of his own end, while logging heavy minutes against the opposition's top lines. He feels that will eventually lead to more opportunities offensively. Barrie has posted one goal and two assists in the last four games, so he could be turning the corner.

Tyson Barrie took a very impressive eight shots on goal in Colorado's 3-2 win over Arizona Saturdy night.

That represents over half of his entire season total of 15. If Barrie shoots the puck like that he will have no trouble topping 50 points this season with an outisde chance at 60.

The Colorado Avalanche dodged a bullet by re-signing Tyson Barrie, and he showed promise in a season-opening 6-5 win against the Dallas Stars.

Barrie scored a goal and an assist, enjoyed a +2 rating, two PIM, one SOG and one blocked shot during a busy Saturday. Nathan MacKinnon looked dangerous in his own right, collecting 1G and 1A of his own.

Tyson Barrie will play "important minutes" for the Avalanche.

"Obviously, he's a gifted offensive player," new bench boss Jared Bednar said. "He's going to defend like everyone else on our team, defend hard and compete hard within our system and the structure which we play. We're going to use him to his strengths every chance we get. He's a guy who can help us produce offensively and we'll lean on him to do that at all times through the season." Barrie has 50-point potential again in 2016-17 after he surpassed that mark in 2014-15 and finished with a total of 49 last year.

Tyson Barrie is glad to have the security of a four-year contract.

"It's nice not to play for a deal every year," he said. "With that being said, I have a long way to go as a player, and I know that. There's another level to my game that I'm looking to take it to and really become that next-level defenseman in this league. This deal represents that, and it's something I'm going to take pride in." Barrie wants to become an all-around defender, who can be used against the top lines of the opposition while continuing to contribute offensively. He feels ready to step up and serve as a leader of the team.
