Avs' Mitchell Notches PPP In Loss

News: John Mitchell dished out an assist in Wednesday's 5-1 loss to the Sharks.
Analysis: John Mitchell's assist was of the power play variety, giving the forward an assist, a power-play point, five hits and skated to a minus-2 rating in Wednesday's loss to San Jose. The assist is Mitchell's third point in the last four games, however, the forward's overall production in the stat sheet has been limited despite an increase in ice time over the past couple of weeks.

Avs' Mitchell Gets Goal In Second Straight

News: John Mitchell tallied a goal in Saturday's win over the Sabres, marking the second straight game he's found twine.
Analysis: John Mitchell has been seeing more frequent top-six minutes of late, making him a bit more interesting in the fantasy realm. However, until he maintains the level of production he's shown over the last two games for a longer period of time, Mitchell probably won't notice a massive surge in his ownership rates.

Avs' Mitchell Tallies Game-Winner Saturday

News: John Mitchell scored the game-winning goal in Saturday's triumph over the Flames.
Analysis: Usually deployed on the Avs' second or third line, John Mitchell typically hasn't been an overwhelming source of offense, but certainly game through Saturday. He's a decent all-around player (21 points, 115 hits, 30 PIM, and a minus-8 rating over 55 games), though he's doesn't stand out in any one category to increase his value in the fantasy realm.

John Mitchell, C, COL Avs' Mitchell Records Assist In Loss

John Mitchell

Avs' Mitchell Records Assist In Loss

News: John Mitchell captured an assist in Thursday's 6-3 loss to the Rangers.
Analysis: The Avs' third-line center has been a functional depth forward with six goals and 17 points in 41 games, but those outputs probably won't impress most fantasy owners. Things don't seem to be trending in a positive direction for John Mitchell, either, as the assist marked his first point in five games.

Points Trickling In For Avs' Mitchell

News: John Mitchell supplied an assist and four hits in Thursday's win over the Panthers.
Analysis: John Mitchell has been a surprising source of points lately for the Avalanche, tallying two goals and three assists over his last six games. His career numbers suggests he's closer to a half-point per game player, however, so unless he ascends to a top-six role, it may be tough for him to sustain this scoring run.

Avs' Mitchell Tallies Two Helpers

News: John Mitchell helped out on both goals in Tuesday's 2-0 win over the Blackhawks.
Analysis: The Avs struck twice in the first 77 seconds of this game, and John Mitchell was right in the middle of that offense, ending a five-game scoreless drought during which he'd gone minus-6. With just 11 points in 26 contests, his fantasy value is limited to very deep leagues -- preferably those that give credit for his 64 hits.

Avs' Mitchell Gets Two Points In First Game Back

News: John Mitchell (leg) contributed a goal, assist, two PIM and four shots on goal in Saturday's win over the Sabres.
Analysis: Just for good measure, John Mitchell laid two hits and blocked three shots defensively, making for a strong all-around outing in his return from injured reserve. He's been a quality depth center for the Avs over the last two seasons, but injury issues have somewhat limited his overall impact.

Avs Activating Mitchell (Leg) From IR

News: John Mitchell (leg) will be activated from injured reserve in advance of Saturday's game against the Sabres, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: John Mitchell is set to center the Avs' third line, with Alex Tanguay and Jarome Iginla flanking him on the wings. Injury issues have limited Mitchell to 17 of a possible 31 games this season, with the 29-year-old contributing six points over those contests.

Avs' Mitchell To Be Held Out Thursday

News: John Mitchell (leg) will not return to the lineup Thursday against the Penguins, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: John Mitchell's participation in Wednesday's practice looked like it would be enough to ensure his return to the lineup, but the team will give him a little more time to regain some conditioning. He's still expected to play in one or both of the remaining two games on the Avs' road trip.

John Mitchell

Avs' Mitchell Probable For Thursday

News: John Mitchell (leg) is probable to return to the lineup Thursday against the Penguins, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: John Mitchell resumed skating with the team last Friday and seems to be on track to get in a full practice or two by the time the Avalanche play their next game. He would likely slot in as the Avs' third-line center if he's indeed activated prior to Thursday's contest.

John Mitchell

Avs' Mitchell Limited In Friday's Practice

News: John Mitchell (leg) joined his teammates on the ice for a limited portion of Friday's practice, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: It doesn't appear John Mitchell has been cleared for contact work, but his appearance during the practice nonetheless qualifies as a positive sign. The Avalanche hope to have him available at some point during their upcoming three-game road trip, which lasts from Dec. 18 to 21.

John Mitchell, C, COL

John Mitchell

Avalanche Place Mitchell On Injured Reserve

News: The Avalanche placed John Mitchell (leg) on injured reserve Thursday, retroactive to Nov. 29.
Analysis: John Mitchell has already been sidelined over a week, so he will be eligible to resume playing whenever he is healthy. However, his return does not appear imminent, given his lack of recent on-ice participation. The Avalanche will stash him on injured reserve in order to open up a roster spot for Dennis Everberg.

John Mitchell

Avs' Mitchell Listed As Out

News: John Mitchell (leg) will miss his third straight game Tuesday against the Predators, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: It sounds like the Avalanche are viewing John Mitchell as out indefinitely at this time, providing little clarity as to when he might be able to return to the lineup. The Avalanche have recalled Paul Carey and Borna Rendulic over the last two games to help round out their forward corps.

John Mitchell

Avs' Mitchell To Miss Second Straight

News: John Mitchell (leg) will miss his second straight game Thursday versus the Flames, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: John Mitchell hasn't been on the ice since suffering the ailment Saturday night, just the latest setback in an injury-riddled campaign for the forward. He has six points in 17 games on the season.

Avalanche's Mitchell Suffers Leg Injury Saturday

News: John Mitchell is doubtful to return to Saturday's game against the Stars after suffering a leg injury.
Analysis: John Mitchell entered Saturday's game with a preexisting leg injury, though it's still unclear whether or not Saturday's injury is related or fresh. With his return in doubt, he should be considered day-to-day moving forward into Monday's game against the Canadiens.

11/28/2014

John Mitchell, C, COL

John Mitchell

Avs' Mitchell Will Return Saturday

News: John Mitchell (leg) will return to the lineup Saturday against the Stars, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: John Mitchell was a full participant in Friday's practice and was given clearance to return following a three-game absence. The forward has three goals and five points in 16 games this season.

Avalanche's Mitchell Out Wednesday

News: John Mitchell (leg) will not play in Wednesday's game against the Blackhawks.
Analysis: John Mitchell will miss Wednesday's game after tweaking his leg injury during Colorado's morning skate. Consider him questionable for the Avalanche's next game Saturday.

John Mitchell, C, COL

John Mitchell

Avs' Mitchell Unlikely To Play Wednesday

News: John Mitchell (leg) appears unlikely to play Wednesday against the Blackhawks after he left the Avs' morning skate in discomfort, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: John Mitchell was grimacing in pain as he exited the ice after apparently tweaking his existing leg injury, which will likely force him out of action for the third straight game. As a result, expect Ben Street to receive another look as the Avs' third-line center.

John Mitchell

Avs' Mitchell (Face) Out Second Straight Game

News: John Mitchell (leg) will not play Tuesday against the Coyotes, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: John Mitchell didn't even make the trip to Arizona for the game, as he continues to recover from the injury he's believed to have sustained last Thursday against the Capitals. Since it doesn't sound like he's resumed skating yet, it appears doubtful that Mitchell will be able to play in Wednesday's home date with the Blackhawks.

John Mitchell

Avs' Mitchell (Leg) To Miss Saturday's Game

News: John Mitchell will sit out Saturday's game against the Hurricanes with a leg injury.
Analysis: The Avalanche have been absolutely decimated by injuries of late, as the team was forced to move all of Dennis Everberg, Jamie McGinn and Brad Stuart to injured reserve a day earlier to get some healthy bodies onto the active roster. John Mitchell's concern looks minor by comparison and he's being labeled as day-to-day, but the forward will probably need to get in a practice before the Avalanche use him in a game.

John Mitchell

Avs' Mitchell Projected To Play On New Line

News: John Mitchell is projected to play alongside Gabriel Landeskog and Jarome Iginla in Thursday's game against the Rangers, the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Coach Patrick Roy continues to change up his lines, hoping to find some offense from a struggling Avs team. John Mitchell has recorded just two goals and two assists in 13 games this season, while playing on the third line. Even on a new line, he should not draw consideration from fantasy owners.

John Mitchell

Avs' Mitchell Pots Goal In Loss

News: John Mitchell scored his second of the season in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Canucks.
Analysis: John Mitchell opened the scoring just 1:15 into the game, and Colorado was able to make it 2-0 later in the period before surrendering the game's final five goals. He should put up somewhere in the range of 20-30 points, which doesn't merit a ton of fantasy consideration.

Avs' Mitchell Scores Shorthander In Season Debut

News: John Mitchell (head) christened his return from injured reserve Thursday against the Senators with a shorthanded goal in the first period.
Analysis: John Mitchell saw 13:02 of ice time in his season debut, winning eight of his 14 faceoffs. He began the game on the Avs' fourth line, but it didn't take long for coach Patrick Roy to elevate him up to the third line by game's end. Though not a prominent scorer, Mitchell has been able to deliver a goal in his first game of the season for three years running.

John Mitchell

Avs' Mitchell To Make Season Debut Thursday

News: John Mitchell (head) will be activated from injured reserve and play Thursday against the Senators, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Coach Patrick Roy said that John Mitchell would be used as either a center or wing on the first line in his season debut. Mitchell thrived as the Avs' third-line center of choice last season with 32 points and a plus-13 rating over 75 games, but the additions of Jarome Iginla, Dennis Everberg and a healthy Alex Tanguay to the Avs' top-nine forward ranks could relegate Mitchell to bottom-line duty until further notice.

Avalanche's Mitchell Could Play Thursday

News: John Mitchell (head) could play Thursday against the Senators.
Analysis: John Mitchell has been dealing with migraines the last several weeks, but he has been cleared to play by team doctors, and could take the ice as soon as Thursday. Mitchell should play soon if he does not Thursday, but expect an update on his status whenever he officially comes off injured reserve.
