News: Joey Hishon signed a one-year contract with the Avalanche on Monday.
Analysis: Joey Hishon suited up for 13 games with the Avalanche last season, managing to tally two points (one goal, one assist) in those contests. He fared better with AHL Lake Erie, registering 36 points (16 goals, 20 assists) in 53 games with the team.

Avs Reassign Hishon

News: Joey Hishon was reassigned to AHL Lake Erie on Monday.
Analysis: Joey Hishon was one of three young Avalanche players sent back to the minors after the NHL season came to a close over the weekend. The 23-year-old recorded a goal and an assist over his 13 games with the Avalanche.

Hishon's First Career Goal Lifts Avs To Win

News: Joey Hishon scored the first goal of his career in the third period of Tuesday's game against Nashville, delivering a 3-2 lead that held up the rest of the way.
Analysis: It was also the first career point in 13 NHL games for the 2010 first-rounder, who also turned around his recent struggles at the faceoff dot, going 6-for-6. Injuries have dogged Joey Hishon early in his pro career, so we may not yet have seen the 23-year-old's full potential at either the AHL or NHL level.

Avs' Hishon (Neck) Will Play Monday

News: Joey Hishon (neck) will return to the ice against the Flames on Monday, broadcaster Marc Moser reports.
Analysis: Joey Hishon has missed the last five games for Colorado but will return to the ice for just his third game this season.

Avs' Hishon To Sit Out Another

News: Joey Hishon (neck) will not play Friday against the Ducks.
Analysis: The Avs were hopeful that Joey Hishon would be able to give it a go for at least one of the games during their back-to-back set, but he'll instead be forced to miss a fifth straight contest. He's been able to skate with the Avalanche the last few days, so a return to the lineup might not be far off.

Avs' Hishon Not Ready For Thursday

News: Joey Hishon (neck) will not play Thursday against the Coyotes, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Joey Hishon took part in line rushes during the Avs' morning skate, but the Avalanche's medical staff determined that he wasn't quite ready to play just yet. As has been the case for the last handful of games, Freddie Hamilton is poised to take his spot as the fourth-line center.

Avs' Hishon May Play Thursday

News: Joey Hishon (neck) practiced Wednesday and could play in Thursday's game against the Coyotes, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Joey Hishon has missed three consecutive contests, but appears to be making progress and should be considered questionable for Thursday's tilt. His status will likely be updated further after the team's practice Thursday.

Avs' Hishon Out Again Thursday

News: Joey Hishon (neck) will be unavailable for Thursday's game against the Devils.
Analysis: Coach Patrick Roy reiterated Thursday that Joey Hishon is day-to-day and is "close" to a return, but he'll be forced to sit out a second straight game due to the elbow issue. His next chance to play will come Saturday against the Flames.

Avs' Hishon Out Tuesday

News: Joey Hishon will miss Tuesday's game against the Kings and is considered day-to-day with a elbow injury.
Analysis: Joey Hishon missed Saturday's game with an undisclosed injury, but returned to the lineup Sunday against the Wild, logging 5:59 of action. It's possible that he was dealing with the elbow issue all along and aggravated it in Sunday's contest, but for the moment, the injury doesn't seem to be overly significant. Hishon's availability for Thursday's game against New Jersey remains to be determined.

Avs' Hishon Back in Action

News: Joey Hishon (undisclosed issue) suited up Sunday against the Wild.
Analysis: With Joey Hishon -- who was forced to exit Friday's practice after colliding with a teammate -- back in the Avs' lineup, the team scratched veteran forward Daniel Briere on Sunday.

Avs' Hishon Should Play Saturday

News: Joey Hishon (undisclosed) is expected to play Saturday against the Blue Jackets, Terry Frei of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Joey Hishon was forced to exit Friday's practice after colliding with a teammate, but coach Patrick Roy said after the session that the center was feeling fine. Barring a late-arriving setback, Hishon should be poised to center the Avs' fourth line Saturday.

Avs' Hishon Suffers Injury In Practice

News: Joey Hishon left the ice after colliding with a teammate during Friday's practice, Terry Frei of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: He was removed from the session, but that may have been precautionary more than anything else. Joey Hishon's availability should be clarified in advance of Saturday's game in Columbus, where he's expected to replace Nathan MacKinnon (fractured foot) in the lineup if he receives clearance to play.

Hishon Recalled By Avs

News: The Avs recalled Joey Hishon from AHL Lake Erie on Monday.
Analysis: Joey Hishon, who leads Lake Erie with 32 points in 50 games, gives the Avs some added depth up front in the wake of Monday's deal that sent Maxime Talbot and Paul Carey to the Bruins.

Avs Assign Hishon To Minors

News: Joey Hishon was assigned to AHL Lake Erie on Wednesday, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: After making his NHL debut in the Avs' first-round playoff series in the spring, Joey Hishon was expected to challenge for a roster berth in training camp, but the Avs decided he was in need of further development time. With Hison out of the picture and both John Mitchell (head) and Jesse Winchester (concussion) uncertain to be ready for the start of the regular season, Daniel Briere and Marc-Andre Cliche appear positioned to claim the Nos. 3 and 4 center spots, respectively.

Avs' Hishon In For Game 7

News: Joey Hishon will be in the lineup for Wednesday's Game 7 against the Wild, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Joey Hishon made his NHL debut earlier in the series, but has yet to crack the core sheet in two appearances. He'll center the third line between Jamie McGinn and Maxime Talbot on Wednesday.

Avs' Hison In For Game 5

News: Joey Hishon is in the lineup for Saturday's Game 5 against the Wild, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Joey Hishon again gets the nod over Paul Carey, who barely saw the ice in the first three games of the series, despite being active for each of those games. Hishon made his NHL debut in Game 4, logging 6:31 of ice time on eight shifts, with both of those numbers ranking last among the team's active skaters. The former first-round pick is an interesting dynasty prospect, but he probably won't have a major impact on Saturday's game.

Avs' Hishon Could Play Saturday

News: Joey Hishon could play in Saturday's Game 5, as coach Patrick Roy indicated he'll wait until game time to decide between Hishon and Paul Carey, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Both Joey Hishon, who made his playoff debut in Game 4, and Carey have very limited experience, so it's difficult to predict which option Roy will select. Check back closer to game time for an update on his decision.

Avs' Hishon To Play In Game 4

News: Joey Hishon will make his NHL debut in Wednesday's Game 4 against the Wild, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: The former first-round pick will skate as the fourth-line center, while also seeing some time on the power play. Joey Hishon has been a little slow to develop for the Avalanche, but his insertion into action during the playoffs speaks to how highly the organization regards him.

Joey Hishon

Avs Recall Hishon

News: Joey Hishon was recalled from AHL Lake Erie on Tuesday, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: The Avs' first-round draft pick back in 2010, Joey Hishon has seen his career stall out due to a litany of injuries, but coach Patrick Roy said he may be a lineup consideration for Wednesday's Game 4 against the Wild. It seems rather unlikely that Roy would entrust a young player like Hishon to make his NHL debut in the midst of an intense playoff series, but if the center looks impressive in Tuesday's practice, Roy could take a chance on him.

Avs' Prospect Hishon (Concussion) Cleared For Practice

News: Joey Hishon (concussion) has been cleared to resume skating, according to Mile High Hockey.
Analysis: For now, Joey Hishon remains at AHL Lake Erie and has not played a game since suffering a concussion at the 2011 Memorial Cup Tournament. He hasn't been cleared for contact yet, but the fact that he's back on skates is a good sign.

Avalanche's Hishon (Concussion) Still Not Cleared To Play

News: Joey Hishon (concussion) still has not been cleared to play, the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: While he has not been cleared to play, he is currently with the Lake Erie Monsters regularly and has been able to skate. He is considered day-to-day.

Avs' Prospect Hishon Still Out With Concussion

News: Joey Hishon is still not ready to return to hockey after suffering a concussion in a game played some 17 months ago and his return is not clear, reports the National Post.
Analysis: He's on the Avs' AHL Lake Erie roster, but he hasn't been able to report for duty. "He's back home, still dealing with post-concussion symptoms," Lake Erie coach Dean Chynoweth said on Friday. "He has felt better. He has skated. And he's dealing with now, similar with Sidney [Crosby], where they're working neck-related, to the head." Joey Hishon has skated on his own and has remained in close contact with the Avs through his rehab, but this is obviously concerning.

Avs' Prospect Hishon Kicks Concussion

News: Joey Hishon (concussion) appears to finally be on the mend after undergoing oxygen therapy treatment, according to the Denver Post.
Analysis: The Avs' 2010 first-round draft pick didn't play at all this past season after sustaining a concussion during the 2011 Memorial Cup. However, thanks to a Hyberbaric oxygen therapy center in Ohio called Sara's Garden, Joey Hishon claims he is finally on the road to recovery. "I would recommend this facility to anyone in need. This treatment has endless possibilities," Hishon tweeted recently, adding, "I am now on the proper path to recovery and working towards becoming a professional athlete like I have always dreamed of." Expect a healthy Hishon to compete for a roster spot at the Avs' training camp this fall.

Avs' Prospect Hishon Still Sidelined With Concussion Symptoms

News: Joey Hishon remains sidelined with concussion-like symptoms a year after taking a hit to the head in a Memorial Cup playoff game last spring, according to the Denver Post's Adrian Dater.
Analysis: Joey Hishon has not played since, and there is simply no way of knowing when or if the Avs' former first-round pick will return. As with all concussion-related injuries, time will tell.

Avs' Prospect Hishon Still Sidelined With Concussion

News: Joey Hishon remains sidelined with concussion symptoms, according to the Denver Post.
Analysis: Joey Hishon has yet to play a game this season after taking an elbow to the head during the Memorial Cup Tournament earlier in the year. As with most concussion-related injuries, there is no timetable for his return, so don't plan on using him for fantasy purposes anytime soon.
