The rookie forward snapped a 13-game goalless skid in style Sunday night, recording his third hat trick of the season to break the franchise record for hat tricks by a rookie, previously set by Steve Larmer in 1983.
With his three tallies DeBrincat now sits tied for second among all rookies with 25 goals, which also shares the team lead.
Trouba struggled to get to this feet after taking the hit, needing help from teammates to get to the bench.
It was Trouba's second game since returning from a 20-game absence with a lower-body injury Thursday. In his first game back the 24-year-old made an immediate impact, collecting two assists against the Chicago Blackhawks.
Donato's incredible year was highlighted by his appearance at the Olympics where he represented the United States. While there, he tied for the tournament lead with five goals in six games and paced all American players with six points.
The 26-year-old left Saturday night's game against the New York Rangers after the first period and did not return. The injury new comes with Tarasenko in the midst of a down period offensively, having notched just one goal and three points in his last seven games.
Although they have just four wins in their last 10 games, the Blues sit just three points out of the final wild-card spot heading into Sunday's contest.
The Colorado Avalanche forward recorded two goals, one assist and 11 shots in Sunday's win over Detroit, extending his personal point streak to 12 games and strengthening his team's bid for a Western Conference playoff spot as a result.
Everything seems to be going his way these days, as evidenced by a fortuitous bounce on his second goal of the afternoon:
MacKinnon now sits on 38 goals and 51 assists for 89 total points through 64 games, temporarily moving him into a tie for second among all players and within striking distance of Tampa Bay's Nikita Kucherov, who entered Sunday's game against Edmonton with 91 points.
On a point per game basis, however, MacKinnon holds the advantage, as his 1.39 average is tops among all players.
Add in that Colorado has rebounded tremendously following an historically awful 2016-17, and MacKinnon should be at the forefront of any conversation in regards to the Hart Trophy.
Securing a postseason spot is key, as someone from a non-playoff team hasn't been named MVP since Mario Lemieux in 1988, and it only happened three times prior to that.
As it stands, MacKinnon and the Avs are rolling to an impressive finish.
