News: Barrie (upper body) will return for Game 1 of the playoffs Thursday. Impact: Avs fans should be ecstatic at coach Patrick Roy's announcement, as Colorado's 38-point rearguard will return just two games after suffering an upper-body injury on a massive blindside hit by the Sharks' Jason Demers. Barrie has been a dynamic force from the back for the Avs all year long, and has garnered a significant amount of attention recently for his five game-winning goals, three of which came in overtime. Regardless of whether the Avs get swept in the first round or go all the way to drink from the silver chalice, be sure not to sleep on this kid in next year's drafts.(RotoWire, )

News: Barrie left with an upper-body injury in the second period of Friday's game against the Sharks, Terry Frei of the Denver Post reports. Impact: Barrie was blindsided by a questionable hit in the first by the Sharks' Jason Demers. He actually returned to action after not starting the second, but would leave again permanently soon after. With the playoffs getting underway in less than a week, losing the dynamic blueliner for any amount of time would be a devastating blow to the Avs, who are already jockeying with St. Louis for the Central Division title without the services of stud Matt Duchene and John Mitchell - who is sitting out his first game with "headaches" and a possible concussion. The Avs close out their regular season on the road at Anaheim on Sunday; stay tuned for more information.(RotoWire, )

News: After undressing Vancouver's Alex Edler with a slick toe-drag on a two-on-one, Barrie whistled his 13th goal of the season past a helpless Jacob Markstrom in Thursday's 4-2 win. Impact: By now, it's no secret that Barrie is having a tremendous season for the Avs. The British Columbian's 38 points put him in a three-way tie for 25th overall in scoring among blueliners, while his five game-winning goals trail only the Penguins' Matt Niskanen and the Coyotes' Oliver Ekman-Larsson among D-men. Barrie's impressive plus-18 rating also places him 16th overall at his position. Curiously enough, his average ice time is down almost three full minutes per game from last season (21:35 to 18:40), so maybe he's felt fresher with an extra spring in his step in 2013-14. Whatever the reason, hopefully you clued in early enough to reap the rewards of the former 64th-overall pick's breakout campaign.(RotoWire, )

News: Barrie scored the game-tying goal with 52 seconds remaining Thursday against the Rangers, then beat Henrik Lundqvist on a gorgeous move for the only goal of the shootout. Impact: Barrie seems to have a knack for scoring points at big moments, and with 34 of them in 59 games this year, the 22-year-old's future is very bright.(RotoWire, )
