Injury Update

After my lovely time trying to compile injury data for my seamless glass post last summer, I decided to keep track of the Avs injuries while they happened this year so there would be a record SOMEWHERE of the duration of each injury and how it was caused. I just updated it, so this list should be current as of last game. Please let me know if I have any mistakes. I'll keep re-posting this every month or so from here on out.

Also, if anyone is curious about injuries to the other teams in the league, this site is a great reference tool. They've not updated their totals in a bit, but at the end of November, the Avs were one of the 5 LEAST injured clubs in the league. Crazy, right?

We're on pace for about 161 MGL this year, or approximately 1/3 of the 474 we lost last year. I just hope we can stay healthy going into the second part of the season.

***Table does not include totals from players that have not played with the club this year (Olver, Rissmiller, etc.)***

(TCD = Training Camp Day, PSG = Preseason Game, RS MGL = Regular Season Man-Game Lost)
