  • Adam Foote has been placed on the IR. He suffered knee and back injuries after a cheap shot from the Kings' John Zeiler. Zeiler was suspended for 3 games. Foote will miss his 4th tonight. The move is retroactive to 11/22, so Foote is eligible to be activated at any time...but it doesn't sound like he's that close.
  • To replace Foote's roster spot, the Avs have recalled defenseman Aaron MacKenzie. MacKenzie is a former University of Denver player who signed with the Avs as a free agent this summer. MacKenzie wears Kurt Saur's old #34 and made a preseason appearance with the Avs in September. He's not expected to play tonight, but stranger things have happened.
  • Joe Sakic is not playing tonight, and has been downgraded to "indefinite". Dater is pretty dire with the outlook, but not me (see Joe Sakic Rule).
