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

I definitely think going back down helped me, I had a lot of confidence down there, I played a lot of minutes and I think that helped me a lot. With the 37 games up here, that gave me experience as well. I know what it takes to play in the NHL and now it's time for me to show that I'm capable of being a full-time NHL player.
