by Callie Parmele @CallieParmele / ColoradoAvalanche.com

NEWARK, N.J.--For the first time during the 2018-19 regular season, Sven Andrighetto was a full participant in a Colorado Avalanche practice. The forward skated in a regular practice jersey during the team's afternoon on-ice session at Prudential Center on Wednesday.

The Zurich, Switzerland, native suffered a leg injury in a preseason game against the Dallas Stars on Sept. 26. He was a non-contact player during Colorado's morning skate on Saturday and in the club's practice on Sunday before the team began its road trip out east.

Calvert Returns To Columbus

Avalanche forward will be playing his first game against the Blue Jackets, his former team of eight seasons

by Ron Knabenbauer @RonKnab / ColoradoAvalanche.com

COLUMBUS, Ohio--Matt Calvert is from Brandon, Manitoba, but in many ways he grew up in Ohio's capital city.

He was selected in the fifth round (No. 127 overall) by the Columbus Blue Jackets in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft and played eight seasons with the club. He recorded 149 points (72 goals and 77 assists) in 416 games and went through the ups and downs with the organization during his time there. Calvert started a family with his wife Courtney in the Buckeye State and grew to love the city, the fans and the team.

So tonight's Colorado Avalanche game will be a little "weird" for him as he'll play his first outing at Nationwide Arena as a member of the visiting squad.

Projected Lineup: Avalanche at Blue Jackets

Gabriel Landeskog will play, Philipp Grubauer starting in goal

by Ron Knabenbauer @RonKnab / ColoradoAvalanche.com

COLUMBUS, Ohio--Gabriel Landeskog will be in the Colorado Avalanche's lineup this evening versus the Columbus Blue Jackets after missing Monday's practice with a lower-body injury, head coach Jared Bednar confirmed following the team's morning skate at Nationwide Arena.

Landeskog will be in his left-wing spot on the Avs' top line alongside center Nathan MacKinnon and Mikko Rantanen.

Bednar said he is still deciding between Sheldon Dries and Vladislav Kamenev on who will be the Avalanche's 12th forward, but he is leaning toward keeping Dries in and not mixing up the lineup. Kamenev was recalled from the American Hockey League's Colorado Eagles on Monday.
