Colorado Avalanche goaltender Philipp Grubauer was forced to exit Saturday night's Stadium Series contest against the Los Angeles Kings.

Avalanche defenseman Ian Cole bumped into the netminder after a scoring chance by Kings forward Austin Wagner early in the third period. Colorado backup Pavel Francouz replaced Grubauer.

Avalanche head coach Jared Bednar said it's a lower-body injury but didn't have a timetable for Grubauer's recovery, according to The Athletic's Ryan S. Clark.

“The fact that he left the game (Saturday night) tells me there’s certainly the possibility that he’ll miss games," Bednar said, according to ESPN's Greg Wyshynski.

He entered Saturday's game with an 18-12-4 record and a .915 save percentage in 35 contests.
