Avalanche's Josh Manson: Records helper in Game 6

Manson logged an assist, three blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Sunday's 2-1 win over the Lightning in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final. Manson helped out on Artturi Lehkonen's second-period goal, which ended up clinching the Stanley Cup for the Avalanche. A trade-deadline addition from the Ducks, Manson was sturdy with eight points, 50 hits, 25 blocked shots and a plus-6 rating in 20 playoff contests. The 30-year-old is a pending unrestricted free agent coming off a four-year deal that paid him $4.1 million annually, though he might command a slight raise given his newfound championship pedigree.

Anaheim Ducks interested in Josh Manson reunion

One of the most speculated-about scenarios at every trade deadline is one where a team, out of the playoff race, trades away an important pending free agent only to re-sign him a few months later. After all, why not lease the player for a nice deadline return of future assets, that make the team even stronger upon his return.

Avalanche's Josh Manson: Contributes goal in blowout

Manson scored a goal on three shots, levied five hits and went plus-3 in Saturday's 7-0 win over the Lightning in Game 2. Manson joined an odd-man rush and converted on a pass from Andrew Cogliano for the Avalanche's second goal. While he's often been more of a grinder on the blue line, Manson is up to three goals and four assists through 16 playoff contests, showing that he's got some skills on offense. The 30-year-old defenseman has added 42 hits, 18 blocked shots, 35 shots on net and a plus-4 rating in a top-four role.

Avalanche's Josh Manson: Nets second playoff goal

Manson scored a goal on four shots and blocked three shots in Thursday's 4-0 win over the Oilers in Game 2. Manson tallied just 15 seconds after Artturi Lehkonen put the Avalanche on the board in the second period, and they easily controlled the game from there. This was a positive bounce-back for Manson, who went minus-4 in the series opener Tuesday. The 30-year-old blueliner is up to two goals, four assists, 26 shots on net, 29 hits, 12 blocked shots and a minus-2 rating in 12 playoff outings.

Josh Manson needs to fill some huge shoes the rest of the way for the Avalanche

The Colorado Avalanche suffered their first serious casualty in the playoffs, as defenseman Sam Girard will not return these playoffs after suffering a broken sternum from a hit by St. Louis Blues forward Ivan Barbashev in the opening minute of Game 3. Later in the first period, Blues goaltender Jordan Binnington would have his series ended by a knee sprain after a netfront collision between himself, Blues defenseman Calle Rosen, and Nazem Kadri. The evidence of a boiling anger simmers in St. Louis, and there’s lots of potential for a nasty Game 4 on Monday night.

Avalanche's Josh Manson: Garners assist in Game 3

Manson picked up an assist, three hits and two PIM in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Blues in Game 3. Manson set up Logan O'Connor for the game-tying goal just after the Avalanche killed off a penalty. Defense and physical play has long been Manson's calling card, but he's added a solid four points to go with a plus-1 rating and 21 hits in seven playoff contests. With his defense partner Samuel Girard (chest) out for the year, Manson will be asked to carry the defensive load alongside one of Bowen Byram, Jack Johnson or Kurtis MacDermid going forward in what could develop into a shutdown pairing.
