The Colorado Avalanche avoided a major scare Saturday, as superstar Mikko Rantanen was held out of the third period versus the Los Angeles Kings for precautionary reasons, according to Ryan Clark of The Athletic.

The 22-year-old is set to play the club's next contest Monday versus the Nashville Predators, Clark adds.

Rantanen had another huge game, burying two goals in Colorado's 7-1 rout. However, after his second of the contest, he appeared to take a bit of an awkward fall.

Rantanen now has 73 points in 48 games this season.
