DENVER - The Colorado Avalanche placed defenceman Adam Foote on the injured list Saturday due to injuries to his lower back and knee, and recalled defenceman Aaron MacKenzie from Lake Erie of the AHL.

Foote, 37, was injured in the second period of Colorado's game against Los Angeles on Nov. 22 and didn't return. He has already missed three games.

In 19 games this season, Foote has one assist.

MacKenzie had three goals and three assists in 16 games for Lake Erie. He has not played an NHL game and he was a healthy scratch on Saturday night when the Avalanche faced Tampa Bay.

Quote of the Day

My job was to get that puck and put it on net, and his job was not letting me do it. I got the best of that, but that game's over and to be honest I already forgot about it.
