Tyson Barrie took over the scoring lead for the Avalanche on Monday night.
He scored his third goal of 2014-15 in a 4-3 loss to Montreal to give him 19 points in 25 games. Barrie is a good offensive blueliner, but it's surprising to see him ahead of Nathan MacKinnon, Matt Duchene, Ryan O'Reilly and Gabriel Landeskog in the Avalanche point race. Those notable forwards have struggled to produce this campaign. Dec 2 - 9:15 AM

Tyson Barrie got his first goal of the season on a two-man advantage in Colorado's 4-3 loss to the Panthers on Tuesday.

It was nice to see Barrie get on the board as many projected the talented d-man to take the next step to stardom this season. Barrie has three points in seven games so for a Colorado Avalanche team that has struggled offensively. Look for the point totals to go up for Barrie when Colorado snaps out of this early season funk. Gabriel Landeskog and Alex Tanguay also had goals in the loss.

Tyson Barrie would like nothing better than a couple of wins over the Minnesota Wild to start the season.

He insists that he doesn't hold a grudge against Wild forward Matt Cooke, who injured him with a knee-on-knee collision in Game 3 of the first round of the playoffs in April. However, he feels the best way to get back at them is to "beat them good, at home, and then come back here and beat them again and kind of set the tone for our year."

Tyson Barrie has fully recovered from the knee injury he suffered during last year’s Stanley Cup playoffs.

Barrie suffered the injury after taking a knee-on-knee hit from Minnesota’s Matt Cooke. "It was real hard, not being able to play in the playoffs after all we’d accomplished together to that point," said Barrie. "The sting doesn’t go away too quickly, but you deal with it and once I started feeling better and skating again, you can kind of put it more in the back of your mind." The 23-year-old had 13 goals and 38 points in just 64 games last season. Assuming he stays healthy, Barrie should continue to be a key offensive contributor on Colorado’s blue line.

"Tyson is a big part of the young nucleus of our team," said Avalanche Executive Vice President of Hockey Operations Joe Sakic. "He is a gifted young defenseman who brings a lot of offense. We are pleased to have him under contract and look forward to his contribution this upcoming season." He got off to a rough start in 2013-14, but he turned things around after his demotion to the minors. Barrie scored 13 goals and 38 points in 64 games with the Avalanche last year.
