We can report with confidence that Bo Byram will return to Colorado Avalanche practice on Monday, albeit in a non-contact jersey.
Byram, who has been listed out with a head injury since Dec. 1, has yet to skate with the team in more than a couple weeks. He has been at the rink of late, however, including today:

Byram was having a season that had him in the early Calder Trophy field, when he came out of a Dec. 1 game against Toronto, and has yet to play since.
“Bo is going to skate tomorrow (Monday) in a non-contact (jersey) with the team,” Avalanche coach Jared Bednar said after Sunday’s practice at Ball Arena. “It seems like he’s been doing better over this break, so if things go well, it’s a day to day thing. If things go well, we can start ramping him up.”
The Avs will practice again Monday after resuming activities today, from the league-wide pause. Bednar said he is confident the next game, scheduled for Wednesday against Dallas, will be played.
