Avalanche place Stastny, Hejduk on injured reserve

The Colorado Avalanche on Monday placed forwards Paul Stastny and Milan Hejduk on injured reserve and recalled David Van Der Gulik and Brad Malone from their American Hockey League affiliate, Lake Erie.

Hejduk suffered an apparent shoulder injury in Colorado's 1-0 overtime loss to Nashville on Saturday, while Stastny has been out since March 24 with a foot injury.

The Avalanche head into Monday night's game in Detroit sitting 15th in the Western Conference with 28 points, nine behind the eighth-place Columbus Blue Jackets.

Quote of the Day

I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
