DENVER -- Colorado Avalanche coach Patrick Roy said he would know early next week whether injured right wing Alex Tanguay will need hip surgery.
Tanguay has been sidelined since he sustained knee and hip injuries in a Nov. 2 game against the Montreal Canadiens.
"Monday or Tuesday will be a big test for him," Roy said. "He's going to skate and if it goes well, we'll keep going [with his rehab program]. If it's not, then we're probably going to have to have surgery for his hip. That's where we are."
The Avalanche have gone 2-0-1 in the first three games of their seven-game homestand heading into the game Saturday against the San Jose Sharks at Pepsi Center.
The teams didn't have a morning skate because of the afternoon start.
Here are projected lineups for the Avalanche and Sharks:
Gabriel Landeskog -- Paul Stastny -- Ryan O'Reilly
Maxime Talbot -- Matt Duchene -- Jamie McGinn
Cody McLeod -- John Mitchell -- Nathan MacKinnon
Brad Malone -- Marc-Andre Cliche -- Patrick Bordeleau
Erik Johnson -- Jan Hejda
