Hejduk out for Avalanche with torso injury

The Colorado Avalanche announced forward Milan Hejduk will miss Tuesday's game against the Detroit Red Wings with a torso injury.

The 14-year veteran has three goals and nine points in 20 games this season.

The Avalanche also announced Jean-Sebastien Giguere would get the start in goal. Giguere briefly left the team to fly home to Montreal to attend the funeral of his mother.

Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
