Avalanche defenseman Hejda out 10-14 days
Colorado Avalanche defenseman Jan Hejda has a sprained knee and will be sidelined 10-14 days, the Denver Post reported Saturday.

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

When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.
