Avalanche's Alex Newhook: Notches pair of helpers

Newhook recorded two assists in Saturday's 7-0 win over the Lightning in Game 2. Newhook had the secondary helpers on goals by Valeri Nichushkin (on the power play) and Josh Manson in the first period. This outing snapped a four-game point drought for Newhook. The 21-year-old saw a playoff-high 16:04 of ice time, but the lopsided score likely factored into the increased usage. Newhook has picked up four helpers in eight postseason contests in a bottom-six assignment.

Avalanche's Alex Newhook: Gathers assist Tuesday

Newhook posted an assist, two shots on goal and three blocked shots in Tuesday's 8-6 win over the Oilers in Game 1. Newhook has struggled to maintain a regular role in the lineup, but he's played in three of the Avalanche's last four games. His assist Tuesday came on the first of J.T. Compher's two goals in the game, which tied it at 1-1 just 36 seconds after Evander Kane opened the scoring. Newhook has two helpers, two shots, three hits, four blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in his three playoff appearances. When he plays, he'll likely be limited to a third-line role, though he'll have to hold off Nicolas Aube-Kubel for playing time.
