Wilson is expected to return to the Avalanche lineup against the Sharks after being activated from injured reserve. He has missed 15 games since injuring his ankle Feb. 2 against Edmonton. Wilson has three assists and a plus-6 plus/minus rating in eight games this season. Hejduk, who has missed three games with a torso injury, was placed on IR to make room for Wilson.
I'm here to develop a winning culture and a winning team. There is a bright future ahead of this team. A lot of young, great hockey players here and on the way … a fan base that's passionate about the game of hockey.
