Colorado Avalanche defenseman John-Michael Liles was activated from the Injured Reserve (IR) list on Tuesday.
Liles has missed the past 11 games after suffering a broken left foot on Jan. 6 at Minnesota. He was placed on the IR, Jan. 8. At the time of his injury, Liles ranked fourth among NHL defensemen in goals (10) and 12th in points (29). He is the first defenseman to score 10 or more goals in each of his first three NHL seasons since Steve Duchesne from 1986-87 to 1988-89.
