Colorado Avalanche defenseman Jan Hejda has a sprained knee and will be sidelined 10-14 days, the team said Saturday.

Hejda was injured Thursday in a game against the Edmonton Oilers.

He lost his balance and crashed into the corner boards in Colorado's zone after he got tangled up with Edmonton's Mark Arcobello in a puck pursuit. Hejda was helped off the ice.

Hejda leads the Avalanche in ice time per game at 22:10 per game. He has three goals, six assists and is plus-9.

The Avalanche next play Sunday at the Vancouver Canucks.

Quote of the Day

I was going nuts and I saw [Subban], he was going crazy, and the ref had no idea where to go. [Subban] was skating to me, and I was skating to him and the ref was right in between us and I don't know, I kind of hit him pretty hard, I thought, but those were some emotions and I'm pretty sure he understands that.
