by Staff Writer / Colorado Avalanche
The Colorado Avalanche Hockey Club announced today that it has recalled forward T.J. Hensick from the team’s American Hockey League affiliate, the Lake Erie Monsters.

Hensick is coming off a four-point effort at the 2008 AHL All-Star Game held Monday night in Binghamton, N.Y.  The Lansing, Mich., native had two goals and two assists for the PlanetUSA squad, which lost 9-8 in a shootout to the Canadian All-Stars. Hensick’s four points led all players and he also registered a game-high seven shots.

Hensick has tallied 21 points (6g/15a) in 25 games with the Monsters this season.  He was leading the team in scoring prior to his first recall by the Avalanche on Nov. 29.
Colorado’s third-round choice (88th overall) in the 2005 Entry Draft, the 22-year old has notched three points (1g/2a) in 19 games with the Avalanche.

Earlier on Tuesday, the Avalanche recalled forward Brad Richardson from Lake Erie.

Richardson has registered nine points (3g/6a) in his last eight games after being reassigned to Lake Erie on January 6. In his 14 games as a member of the Avalanche this season, he’s recorded three points (1g/2a). This marks his third recall of the season from Lake Erie.
