The Colorado Avalanche: News from around the NHL - December 19th, 2013

Steve Moore has started a charity, and the website is fairly in-depth.

Closing in on a decade since the fateful and frightful day that brought about an abrupt end to his hockey career, former NHLer Steve Moore put the wheels in motion that he hopes will play a role in bringing about change in the way the prevention and awareness of concussions are approached.

The Windsor-born Moore officially launched his own foundation (www.stevemoorefoundation.org) that will offer athletes from all sports access to the latest information on head injuries.

"The official mission of the foundation is to advance the prevention and diagnosis and treatment of concussions and similar serious head and neck injuries in sport," Moore said.

"We tried to build a fairly comprehensive website as a tool and a resource for those who might be looking to be educated, and for those who might be suffering or know others who might be suffering and are looking for more information."

Jaromir Jagr has now scored more NHL goals than Steve Yzerman. Two more goals and he'll have more than Messier.

Jaromir Jagr has moved into some rarefied company with a deft scoring touch over 20 NHL seasons.

Rookie Reid Boucher is impressing people with his ability to find the net.

Jagr’s 693rd career goal was his 122nd game-winner, passing Gordie Howe for most in NHL history, and the New Jersey Devils beat the Ottawa Senators 5-2 Wednesday night.

Jagr also moved past Steve Yzerman and into sole possession of eighth place on the NHL goals list, one behind Mark Messier. The 41-year-old Jagr’s first power-play goal of the season was his team-leading 12th.

Harding has been placed on IR.

Minnesota Wild standout Josh Harding has been placed on the injured reserve due to a change in his multiple sclerosis treatment.

The NHL's goals-against average leader will miss a week of action.

"Over the next week, Josh will make a minor adjustment to his treatment protocol," Wild general manager Chuck Fletcher said. "Josh feels great and he looks forward to rejoining our team for our game in Winnipeg on Dec. 27."

Harding has been arguably the best story of the 2013-14 campaign, posting career numbers a year after being diagnosed with MS. He has started most of Minnesota's games due to injuries to usual starter Niklas Backstrom.
