Just over 48 hours after competing in the NCAA men’s hockey national championship game as a sophomore at UMass, the Colorado Avalanche’s Cale Makar became just the seventh player in NHL history to score a postseason goal in their NHL debut.

The goal came with 3:58 left in the first period, and gave Colorado a 3-0 lead over the Calgary Flames.

Makar, 20, was drafted by the Avalanche with the No. 4 overall pick in the 2017 draft.

While there have been several players who have made their NHL debuts in the playoffs, no one has had a turnaround quite like this.

On Friday, Makar won the Hobey Baker Memorial Award as college hockey’s top player. Saturday night, he and UMass fell to Minnesota Duluth in the final. And the following night, he was scoring a goal for the Avalanche in the playoffs.
