Paul Stastny will be back in the line up tonight against the Sharks. Stastny received an injury to his torso during the win against Detroit on Sunday, Dec. 4th. He has been skating on his own and returned to full practice with the team on Monday.
Chuck Kobasew is the most recent victim of a crushed noggin. He is out day-to-day with a head injury suffered during the 4-1 loss to the Oilers on Friday, Dec. 9th. There is no word on how serious the injury is. With Kevin Porter still serving his four-game suspension, expect Brad Malone to stick around for a while.
Ryan Wilson has officially been placed on the IR list, also for a head injury. The Avalanche are being tight-lipped about this - go figure - so there's no confirmation that it is concussion related. Who are we kidding, though? With his history, it's a pretty safe assumption that it is.
