Jason Robertson will carry a 14-game point streak for the Dallas Stars into a rematch with the Colorado Avalanche Saturday in a Central Division showdown.
Included in the point streak, which bested by one game the 13-game point streak by Dave Gagner in 1993, the first season of the Dallas Stars, are three straight two-goal games by Robertson, who now leads the NHL with 18 goals.
Robertson scored both goals in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Avalanche on Monday prior to scoring the first and the last goal in a 6-4 comeback win over the Chicago Blackhawks Wednesday. He added two more Friday in the final three minutes of regulation to force overtime against the Winnipeg Jets, who went on to win 5-4 in the extra session.
“I pride myself on doing everything both ways, and unfortunately I was on the wrong side of guys,” Robertson, who is second in the league in points, told the media.
The Avalanche haven’t played since a 4-3 loss Wednesday as a water main break at Bridgestone Arena postponed their game with the Nashville Predators.
Cale Makar has scored in three straight games and has registered 13 points in six November contests to climb to fourth in goals and points among NHL defenseman.
Colorado is scoring at its lowest rate — 3.44 goals per game – since 2018-19, the year before Makar arrived. The Avalanche put up 3.70 goals per game last season.

Seguin Reaches Milestone
Tyler Seguin isn’t putting the puck in the net as often as he did earlier in his career, but he is still piling up the points, including the 700th of his career a week ago.
The center, who recently surpassed 300 career goals and is close to 400 career assists, is the first member of the 2010 draft class to reach the 700-point milestone.
“I don’t know if this is big yet,” the 30-year-old former No. 2 overall pick of the Boston Bruins told the media.. “There’s so many guys in the league that have over 1,000 points. I don’t know if there has ever been an internal goal where to finish, but it’s cool.”
Due to injuries, Seguin hasn’t scored 30 or more goals in a season since 2018-19. He has just four goals to go along with 14 assists.
Olausson Makes Debut for Avalanche
Oskar Olausson, the 2021 first round pick of the Avalanche, made his NHL debut in Wednesday’s 4-3 loss to the Vancouver Canucks, playing on the second line.
The 20-year-old right wing, who had nine points in 17 games with the Colorado Eagles of the AHL, played just over seven minutes and did not factor in the scoring.
Olausson played in 55 games between the Barrie Colts and Oshawa Generals in the Ontario Hockey League in 2021-22, racking up 26 goals and 49 points.
“He’s had some growth in his game,” Avalanche head coach Jared Bednar told the media. “Watch him move, skate, shoot, handle the puck. Looks like a pro.”
