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

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.

— Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews on teammate Antoine Vermette, who returned from being a healthy scratch in Game 3 to score the double-overtime winner in Game 4
