Updated: Apr 4, 2022

Av's fans can finally stop holding their breath, the Avalanche superstar is set to return to action when they take on the San Jose Sharks tonight.

The 26-year-old was injured when he dropped the gloves with Minnesota Wild defenseman Matt Dumba in the third period of a 3-2 loss on Sunday night.

You can watch a video of the fight down below.

He then returned to Denver to be evaluated, with no timeline for a return.

He was absent from the Avalanche lineup on Tuesday night when they defeated the Calgary Flames 2-1, and his return has now been confirmed by the Colorado Avalanche this morning.

Mackinnon has been limited to just 51 games this season due to injuries and battle with COVID-19, and has still put up 70 points (22 goals, 48 assists), good for fourth on the team in points.

Colorado currently sits first in the NHL overall standings with 100 points and a 47-14-6 record. They will be the team to beat in this year's NHL playoffs, and are still the Stanley Cup favorites.
