Colorado Avalanche defenseman Cale Makar is unavailable for Sunday's clash against the Vegas Golden Knights and is day-to-day with an upper-body injury, Avalanche head coach Jared Bednar confirmed to The Athletic's Peter Baugh.

Sunday's game is Colorado's first since Feb. 2, as the club has dealt with a series of postponements due to COVID-19 protocols.

While Makar's absence is significant, the Avalanche will have No. 1 center Nathan MacKinnon back in the lineup.
