The Colorado Avalanche aren't wasting any time getting Cale Makar in the lineup.

Makar will make his NHL debut Monday night in Game 3 of Colorado's first-round playoff series against the Calgary Flames, the club announced.

The Avalanche signed the 20-year-old to a three-year, entry-level contract Sunday.

Makar's University of Massachusetts squad lost to Minnesota Duluth on Saturday in the Frozen Four national championship game.

He won the Hobey Baker Award as the top NCAA Division I men's hockey player after amassing 49 points in 41 contests this season.
