Colorado Avalanche Injury Updates



Sam Girard

Colorado Avalanche coach Jared Bednar painted a generally upbeat picture of his team’s injury situation this morning on his weekly Altitude radio show.

On Sam Girard, Bednar said, “He’s skating, feeling great. We’re hoping he’s a player for us, hopefully by the Edmonton game (Saturday). Probably wouldn’t throw him in on back-to-backs.”

The Avs’ next game is Friday in Winnipeg. When Girard is active, Bednar acknowledged it will be a game of musical chairs involving his defense.

“We’ll have eight defensemen healthy here, and we’ll have some tough decisions,” Bednar said.

On Nazem Kadri, Bednar said: “Kadri is coming along. Feeling better. He’s still gonna miss a little bit of time here, but I’m confident that he’ll be back too.”

On Gabe Landeskog, Bednar said: “He’s got the same timeline as before. We’re hoping that by the end of the regular season, he’ll still be able to get back in a few games. That looks like it’s on track. He should be getting on the ice sometime soon.”

Ryan Murray will still be out a while with a suspected broken hand.

So, the news seems good. Then again, these are the Avs, so let’s not get above our raisin.
