Colorado Avalanche forward Milan Hejduk left Wednesday night's game against the St. Louis Blues with what the team called a torso injury and will not return.

Hejduk played seven shifts and saw five minutes of ice time before leaving with the injury. He entered the night with two goals and seven points in Colorado's first 14 games.

The 37-year-old recently played his 1,000th NHL game. He has 373 goals and 801 points in 1,005 regular-season games.

Quote of the Day

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
