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

I think everyone left it out there. Every game this season, regular season and playoffs, we played as hard as we could. We're not out of the playoffs right now because of lack of effort, and that's all that we can ask of each other.
