Expect Nathan MacKinnon to get a healthy salary bump starting next season.

MacKinnon is in the final year of his entry level contract, and he'll surely pass Panthers forward Aleksander Barkov's six-year, $35.4 million extension. The only way he won't make more than Barkov is if he decides to sign a short-term bridge contract. The Avs forward has been the most productive player in his draft class. He has 32 more assists in his career than Barkov and 51 more points. According to the Denver Post, MacKinnon's numbers make him a candidate for a long-term deal worth $7 million per year.

Nathan MacKinnon's goal scoring drought has reached 13 games.

In what is likely a reflection of that, MacKinnon didn't practice alongside Gabriel Landeskog and Matt Duchene on Saturday. Instead MacKinnon found himself working with veterans Alex Tanguay and Jarome Iginla. While MacKinnon might see a temporary reduction in ice time due to this shakeup, it might be what it takes to snap him out of his slump. John Mitchell took MacKinnon's former line spot.

Nathan MacKinnon has not scored since November 25th.

That's 11 games for those of you counting. That said, MacKinnon and his line is still producing. Over those 11 games MacKinnon and his linemates Gabriel Landeskog and Matt Duchene have produced seven goals with MacKinnon registering five assists. Still, it would be nice if the talented youngster bulged the twine now and again for the Avs and his fantasy owners. Perhaps he will get the ball rolling against the Oilers Saturday night.
