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 definitely think going back down helped me, I had a lot of confidence down there, I played a lot of minutes and I think that helped me a lot. With the 37 games up here, that gave me experience as well. I know what it takes to play in the NHL and now it's time for me to show that I'm capable of being a full-time NHL player.
