Colorado Avalanche phenom Cale Makar is day-to-day with an upper-body injury, the team announced.

He won't play against the Calgary Flames on Monday, but head coach Jared Bednar said there's a possibility Makar could return later in the week, according to The Athletic's Ryan S. Clark.

Makar left Saturday's game against the Boston Bruins after taking a hard hit into the boards from Brad Marchand.

The 21-year-old blue-liner has taken the league by storm in his rookie season. His 28 points are tied for second among NHL defensemen and the most among all rookies.

Goaltender Philipp Grubauer is also considered day-to-day after exiting Saturday's tilt with a lower-body injury. Pavel Francouz is expected to handle starting duties in the meantime.
