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

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
