Avs' McLeod Moved To Second Line

News: Cody McLeod will skate on the Avs' second line for the game in Columbus on Saturday, Terry Frei of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Cody McLeod will fill the void created by the injury to Nathan MacKinnon, and skate alongside Gabriel Landeskog and Ryan O'Reilly in Saturday's matchup against the Blue Jackets. It was not stated as to whether this will be a lineup used for the remainder of the season or just a temporary fix for the game against Columbus.

Avs' McLeod Tagged For 17 PIM In Loss

News: Cody McLeod was dinged for 17 PIM in Saturday's loss to the Wild.
Analysis: A spirited outing from Cody McLeod, who now has a whopping 167 PIM this season -- second-most in the NHL. While he's only produced nine points in 63 games, the 30-year-old piles up the PIM, making him worth owning in deep specialty leagues.

Avs' McLeod Picks Up 30 PIM, Named First Star

News: Cody McLeod was named first star of the game Saturday, collecting 30 PIM in a win over the Stars.
Analysis: While he was held pointless, the 30-year-old contributed four shots on goal and five hits in 8:58 of ice time. Cody McLeod, who has eight points in 56 games, now has 140 PIM on the season -- second most in the NHL. He doesn't produce much offense in a bottom-six role, but the 30-year-old's whopping PIM totals make him worth owning in very deep leagues.

Avs' McLeod (Leg) Questionable For Tuesday

News: Cody McLeod is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Blackhawks with a leg injury, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Cody McLeod has suited up in all of the Avs' previous 39 games this season, but looks in real jeopardy of having to miss his first contest. The Avalanche will likely reassess his condition in the afternoon before making a final call on his status. If he's unfit to play the Avs will skate 11 forwards, while Zach Redmond enters the lineup as a seventh defenseman.

Avs' McLeod (Leg) Playing Tuesday

News: Cody McLeod (leg) suited up for Tuesday's game against the Blackhawks, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Considered questionable heading into the contest, Cody McLeod experienced no issues during the pregame warmup and was given the go-ahead to play. He'll assume a spot on the Avs' fourth line.

Avs' McLeod Scores In Loss

News: Cody McLeod scored his third goal of the season in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: Cody McLeod had just one point since Nov. 26 entering Sunday's contest, but he was able to pick up a goal on one of his two shots on net. The 30-year-old won't add much offensive production, but his 85 penalty minutes are the second most in the league.

Avs' McLeod Shows Up In Box Score

News: Cody McLeod scored his first goal of the year, added his first assist, went plus-2, collected two PIM and dished four hits Thursday against the Islanders.
Analysis: A nice and easy game for Cody McLeod, who'd (rather typically) collected 26 PIM, but no points over the first 10 games of the year. Don't expect too many offensive outbursts like this from the 30-year-old winger, whose main value lies in his toughness.

Cody McLeod, LW, COL

Cody McLeod

Avs Extend McLeod

News: The Avalanche signed Cody McLeod to a three-year, $4 million extension Monday.
Analysis: The veteran winger provided five goals and eight assists in 71 games last season, and the Avs decided it was enough to warrant an extension. He'll likely continue to be a bottom-six forward this season.

Avs' McLeod Returning For Playoffs

News: Cody McLeod (ankle) will return for game one of the playoffs Thursday, the Colorado Avalanche report.
Analysis: Cody McLeod -- who missed the final six games of the regular season after crashing into the boards on March 4th and injuring his left ankle -- will provide some much needed forward depth for the Avs in their opening-round series against the Wild. Offensive blueliner Tyson Barrie (upper-body) will also rejoin the lineup in game one Thursday.

Avs' McLeod Likely Out For Regular Season

News: Cody McLeod (ankle) is likely out for the rest of the regular season, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Cody McLeod was not able to participate in Tuesday's morning skate, an indication he hasn't made much progress from the ankle injury he sustained last week. He's not much of a fantasy consideration outside of leagues that count hits and penalty minutes.

Avs' McLeod Out Saturday

News: Cody McLeod (ankle) is out for Saturday's game against the Blues, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Cody McLeod isn't thought to be dealing with a serious injury, but he'll miss at least the one game, after hurting his ankle during Thursday's contest.

Avs' McLeod Suffers Ankle Injury

News: Avalanche coach Patrick Roy said after Thursday's game that Cody McLeod is dealing with an ankle injury and may only be day-to-day, reports the Denver Post's Adrian Dater.
Analysis: Roy apparently couldn't commit to the day-to-day status, but he did specify that the injury is to Cody McLeod's left ankle. Already without Matt Duchene (knee) and P.A. Parenteau (knee), the Avs can ill afford to lose another forward, even one like McLeod, who has just 13 points in 70 games. If McLeod isn't ready for Saturday's game against the Blues, Colorado will likely need to recall another forward.

Cody McLeod

Avs' McLeod Injured Thursday

News: Cody McLeod left Thursday's game with an apparent left leg injury, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.
Analysis: Cody McLeod reportedly crashed into the boards and wasn't able to skate on his left leg afterward. He was removed from the game and seems unlikely to return.

Avs' McLeod Tallies Rare Goal

News: Cody McLeod scored a game-tying goal in Wednesday's loss to the Jets.
Analysis: His marker came midway through the third period, sending the game to overtime and allowing the Avalanche to at least salvage a point for their efforts. Cody McLeod typically offers most of his fantasy value in the form of hits and penalty minutes, as Wednesday's goal was just his third of the season.

Avs' McLeod Racking Up PIM, Not Points

News: Cody McLeod has just nine points (two goals, seven assists) in 49 games so far this season; however, he currently leads the Avs in PIM with 97, good for 11th overall in the NHL.
Analysis: Cody McLeod will never be known as a scorer -- his career-best 20 points came five seasons ago -- but he's a decent source of fantasy output for secondary stats like PIM and hits. Deploy accordingly.

No Suspension For Avs' McLeod

News: Cody McLeod will not receive a suspension for his illegal hit on the Wild's Jonas Brodin on Friday, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Director of Player Safety Brendan Shanahan decided that Cody McLeod's immediate ejection from Friday's game was punishment enough for his infraction, so he'll avoid another ban on his record for now. He was previously hit with a five-game suspension earlier this season for a vicious hit on Detroit's Niklas Kronwall.

Avs' McLeod Could Be Facing Another Ban

News: Cody McLeod could be on track to receive another suspension following his illegal hit on the Wild's Jonas Brodin on Friday, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Cody McLeod was ejected for the game and was handed a game misconduct for riding Brodin into the boards. If McLeod is indeed suspended for the hit, the league office figures to pass down word in advance of Saturday's rematch to curb any sort of retaliatory action by the Wild.

Avs' McLeod Completes Suspension

News: Cody McLeod will be available for Saturday's game against the Canadiens after completing his five-game suspension Friday.
Analysis: Cody McLeod is expected to suit up Saturday, filling in for the injured Jamie McGinn on the fourth line. As the suspension would have suggested, most of McLeod's value lies in his physicality with the opposition rather than any sort of scoring acumen. He has already racked up 27 penalty minutes in seven contests.

Cody McLeod

Avs' McLeod Suspended For Five Games

News: Cody McLeod has been suspended for five games for his hit on Detroit's Niklas Kronwall, the Canadian Press's Stephen Whyno reports.
Analysis: Marc-Andre Cliche will fill in while Cody McLeod is unavailable. With 27 PIM and one point through seven games, McLeod is more or less having his typical season.

10/18/2013

Cody McLeod, LW, COL

Cody McLeod

Avs' McLeod Suspended At Least Two Games

News: Cody McLeod will be suspended for at least two games by the NHL and has a hearing scheduled Monday, the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Cody McLeod will miss Saturday's and Monday's games while a possible suspension is reviewed as a result of a hit on Niklas Kronwell on Thursday. While McLeod is out, Marc-Andre Cliche will play in his spot in the lineup.

Cody McLeod

Avs' McLeod Likely Headed For Suspension

News: Cody McLeod received a boarding major and a game misconduct Thursday for delivering a head shot to the Wings' Niklas Kronwall.
Analysis: The hit will likely earn Cody McLeod a date with Brendan Shanahan and a suspension, as Kronwwall had to be removed from the ice on a stretcher. The incident happened in McLeod's very first shift Thursday, resulting in him skating just 34 seconds in the game. His fantasy owners will have to look elsewhere for PIMs in the short term.

Avs' McLeod Stays Hot, Scores Again

News: Cody McLeod scored his eighth goal of the year Tuesday, the lone goal by Colorado against Blues goalie Brian Elliott.
Analysis: That makes it five goals in the last five games for Cody McLeod, who before this little hot stretch had gone nearly a month and a half without a marker. Don't put much weight on this out-of-nowhere scoring outburst; though McLeod has seen good ice time lately, his main fantasy value comes from dropping the gloves and racking up penalty minutes.

4/22/2013

Cody McLeod, LW, COL Avs' McLeod On Four-Game Tear

Cody McLeod

Avs' McLeod On Four-Game Tear

News: Cody McLeod has scored four goals in his last four games.
Analysis: Cody McLeod only has seven goals on the year, but has tallied four in his past four games. He has provided a last-minute burst of offense as the season comes to an end. McLeod also has 79 PIMs this season.

4/15/2013

Cody McLeod

Avalanche's McLeod Scores Twice

News: Cody McLeod netted two goals and was a plus-2 against the Blue Jackets on Monday.
Analysis: Cody McLeod has scored three goals in his last two games, and he is a plus-4 in those contests, but he only has 10 points in 42 games and has no history of success in the NHL.

3/24/2013

Cody McLeod

Avs' McLeod Tagged For 14 Penalty Minutes

News: Cody McLeod was nabbed for tripping, roughing, and misconduct in Saturday's loss at Dallas. The 14 PIMs bring his season total to a team-leading 67 in 30 games. He also delivered five hits on the night.
Analysis: While he offers a tiny bit of offense (3-3-6), there's only one reason to have this enforcer on your fantasy roster.
