Not what the Avalanche wanted to hear: Tanguay out “indefinitely”

Not what the Avalanche wanted to hear: Tanguay out “indefinitely”

Despite the problems the Colorado Avalanche have faced this season: mental lapses, ill-timed penalties, too many penalties, playing from behind and size, one they haven’t had to face yet has been injuries. Unfortunately, now they have one player who could likely be done for the season.

Feeling better and ready to get back in uniform, Alex Tanguay may instead be looking at a much lengthier rehab as he reinjured his knee and now his hip on Tuesday. Coach Patrick Roy says the prognosis isn’t good so far.

The 34-year old winger is currently out indefinitely after this latest setback.

Tanguay through the first 13 games had nine points and was looking reinvigorated with the streaking Avalanche. Since then he has missed 17 games, and now maybe all the rest.

Jan Hejda and Ryan Wilson were both injured but will return Saturday against the Minnesota Wild according to Coach Patrick Roy. “He (Hejda) said there was maybe still a little bit of (a twinge) when he pivots, but overall he looks good. And (Wilson) was pain-free the entire practice which, in my view, is very positive,” Roy said of Hejda and Wilson on Wednesday.

The Avs have their issues, but one of them certainly does not need to be injuries.
