Milan Hejduk earned Avalanche "Play of the Week" laurels for the Jan. 23-29 timeframe. It marked the second straight week the veteran winger has earned top play honors from the fans, as his 300th career goal against Calgary on Jan. 18 also topped the vote.
Hejduk's tally against Toronto on Jan. 29 earned 55.66% of the vote, topping John-Michael Liles' goal against the Maple Leafs (22.88%) and Andrew Raycroft's stop on San Jose's Devin Setoguchi (21.46%) on Jan. 27.
The play now automatically qualifies for Colorado’s year-end “Play of the Year” bracket-style tournament – to be determined by Avalanche fans.
Be sure to check back each Friday during the season, as three new choices for the Avalanche’s “Play of the Week” will be posted for you to vote upon.
