Most of the Colorado Avalanche are still on break, but the injured players continue to skate in Denver.
Bowen Byram was back on the ice on Wednesday afternoon with Kurtis MacDermid. This time, they were joined by Josh Manson, who has been out since early December with a lower body injury.
Both Byram and Manson look good, and are moving much better. A return does not seem far off, and it would not surprise me if both return to the lineup sometime next week when the Avalanche are back in game action, but then again, I’m not a doctor (hopefully this doesn’t surprise anyone ). Things seem to be trending in the right direction, though.
Today, they were joined by Valeri Nichushkin.
Nichushkin missed the final two games before the All-Star break due to an upper body injury, and has missed a large portion of the year due to foot/ankle issues. He was a little late to the ice, but after working on his own, joined the other players for some drills.
Take a look at some videos from the skate. It’s a quiet news week around the Avalanche, so these will have to suffice.
