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.

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.

Lingering Concussion Keeps Avs' Prospect Hishon Out Of Camp

News: Joey Hishon (concussion) has not participated in training camp and remains out indefinitely, the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: There is no timetable for Joey Hishon's return, and it's becoming increasingly likely he will start the season either on the IR or back in the minors.

Avs' Prospect Hishon To Miss Rookie Camp

News: Joey Hishon (concussion) is absent from the Avs' rookie camp being held this week in Denver, the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Joey Hishon, the Avs' first-round draft pick from 2010, suffered a concussion while playing in the Memorial Cup Tournament earlier this year. He projects as a top-six player in the NHL someday, but obviously needs to get healthy before he can land a roster spot. Hishon scored 87 points (37G, 50A) in 50 games this past season at OHL Owen Sound.

Avs Prospect Hishon Battling Concussion Symptoms

News: Hishon is attempting to shake the effects of concussion-like symptoms after taking an elbow to the head while playing in the recent Memorial Cup Tournament, the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Hishon was in the Denver area last week for the Avalanche's three-day development camp and took time out to get examined by the team's medical personnel. However, Hishon said everything is progressing well. "I'm feeling great and everything's moving in the right direction," Hishon said. "This is just a very minor thing that we're taking seriously to make sure nothing reoccurs down the road." Hishon scored 87 points (37G, 50A) in 50 games for OHL Owen Sound this past season, and health permitting, will compete for a roster spot with the Avs come training camp. "Whatever happens, happens," he said. "Right now my goal is to make the team and do whatever I possibly can to do that. If that doesn't happen, wherever they send me, they'll send me. I'll work hard wherever I am."
