Avalanche defenseman Tyson Barrie injured at Arizona after blocking shot with his hand – The Denver Post

GLENDALE, Ariz. — Avalanche defenseman Tyson Barrie blocked a shot with his hand on his third shift Saturday and did not return to the game against the Arizona Coyotes at Gila River Arena. Barrie, who played just 2:39, could be out long-term after stepping into a shot from Coyotes defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson.

“He broke his finger/hand,” Avs coach Jared Bednar said of Barrie after the game. “I haven’t got the lowdown on it yet but he has a fracture in his hand.”

The Avs begin the three-day Christmas break Sunday and don’t play against until hosting Arizona on Wednesday.
