DENVER -- Colorado Avalanche forward Alex Tanguay left the ice in the second period Saturday against the Montreal Canadiens with a knee injury and did not return.

He will have an MRI on the knee Sunday or Monday, coach Patrick Roy said.

Tanguay was injured on a hard hit into the boards at Pepsi Center.

Tanguay had nine points (three goals) in 12 games this year, tying him for third on the team. He was plus-8 entering the game against Montreal.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
