DENVER (AP) -The Colorado Avalanche have recalled forward Chris Durno and defenseman Brian Fahey from the Lake Erie Monsters of the American Hockey League.

The team says both players will be available for Friday's game against the Minnesota Wild.

This is the third time Durno has been recalled this season. The Scarborough, Ontario native has played in five games with the Avalanche this season, getting one assist.

The Avalanche also sent defenseman T.J. Hensick to Lake Erie and placed defenseman Adam Foote on injured reserve, retroactive to Nov. 17 because of a jaw injury.

Quote of the Day

That's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays. So it's a huge testament to [Vermette] and some other individuals in our locker room that are putting their own ego, their own wants and needs aside, and are ready for those opportunities when they do come.
