Analysis: The 37-year-old winger is expected to retire at the end of the season, although there is no official word yet from Milan Hejduk. Hejduk has played his entire career for the Avalanche franchise, dating back to the 1998-1999 season.

Analysis: Milan Hejduk was able to practice all week but is not quite ready to return to the lineup. The 37-year-old winger has needed a little longer than expected to return, but he seems to be getting close. Going forward, Hejduk is day-to-day.

Avs' Hejduk: Healthy Scratch Saturday

News: Milan Hejduk was a healthy scratch for Saturday's contest against the Wild.
Analysis: Milan Hejduk returned to the lineup Thursday after missing five games with a torso injury. Hejduk does not appear to be bothered by his torso, but head coach Joe Sacco decided to give the veteran Hejduk a day off to continue to recover from the torso injury.

Avs' Hejduk Returns To Action Thursday

News: Milan Hejduk returned to the lineup after missing the last five games with a sore neck.
Analysis: Milan Hejduk saw time on the top line alongside Paul Stastny and Gabriel Landeskog in Thursday's loss against the Wild. Coach Joe Sacco has already said he will continue to shuffle lines until something clicks, so Hejduk's ice time will be uncertain going forward.

Avs' Hejduk (Torso) Placed On IR

News: Milan Hejduk (torso) has been placed on IR, retroactive to March 3.
Analysis: Milan Hejduk has been out with a torso injury since Feb. 20. When healthy this season, he has not been much of a fantasy factor, as he has just nine points in 20 games.

Avs' Hejduk Will Not Play Wednesday

News: Milan Hejduk (torso) will not play Wednesday against the Blackhawks, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports.

Avs' Hejduk Out Tuesday

News: Milan Hejduk (torso) will miss Tuesday's game against the Red Wings.
Analysis: Milan Hejduk isn't the big scorer he was in his earlier days, but he still carries some utility in deeper formats, as he's recorded nine points in 20 games to date.

Avs' Hejduk Set To Play Saturday

News: Milan Hejduk practiced Friday and is expected to play Saturday against the Kings, the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Milan Hejduk sustained a torso injury during Wednesday's game against the Blues, but the two-day window between games appears to have provided sufficient recovery time. He's expected to reclaim his spot on the Avalanche's third line.

Avs' Hejduk Suffers Torso Injury

News: Milan Hejduk left Wednesday's game against the Blues during the second period with a torso injury and did not return, NHL.com reports.

Avs' Hejduk Records 800th Career Point

News: Milan Hejduk recorded his 800th career point last night on his 37th birthday in a 4-3 shootout victory over the Wild.
Analysis: Milan Hejduk's goal was his second of the year giving him six points through his first twelve games. The 37-year-old veteran has fit nicely into his reduced role this season helping lead a young team. Hejduk isn't going to put up the type of numbers he used to, but his veteran presence is crucial in the team's young locker room.

Hejduk Steps Down As Avs Captain

News: Milan Hejduk voluntarily relinquished his role as captain of the Avs to Gabriel Landeskog on Tuesday, according to the Denver Post.
Analysis: Milan Hejduk presented Landeskog with his captain's sweater inside the team's locker room Tuesday. "It's a great choice," said Hejduk. "[Landeskog]'s going to be, in my mind, the franchise player for a long time. He's young, but he's got a good head on his shoulders. I think the organization is in good hands." Hejduk, in what many believe will be his last in the NHL, will return to an assistant captain role along with Paul Stastny. He will certainly look to improve upon his dreadful numbers from last season - including a career-low 37 points in 81 games - but he will likely be reduced to a third-line role so don't expect too much in the way of upside.

Avs Sign Hejduk To Another One-Year Deal

News: Milan Hejduk signed a one-year deal with the Avalanche on Friday, James Mirtle of the Globe & Mail reports.
Analysis: The 36-year-old was contemplating retirement at the end of March, but he's decided to return next year for another campaign. Milan Hejduk recorded a career-low 37 points (14G, 23A) this year despite missing only one game. He finished with a minus-12 ratio, but the team clearly felt the veteran winger was worth bringing back. Hejduk has spent his entire 12-year NHL career with the Avalanche.

Avs' Hejduk Considering Retirement

News: Milan Hejduk said Friday that he is considering retirement, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Milan Hejduk is a three-time NHL all-star, but he hasn't scored a goal in his past 22 games, and he only has two goals since the calender changed to 2012. He was demoted to the fourth line for Wednesday game. "It is what it is," he responded. "I try to help the team any way I can and leave it all out there, and not worry about anything else." Hejduk's contract expires after this season, and it looks like this might be the end for the 36-year-old.

Milan Hejduk, RW, COL End Of The Line For Avs' Hejduk?

Milan Hejduk

End Of The Line For Avs' Hejduk?

News: Milan Hejduk has just two assists in 14 games so far in the month of March.
Analysis: Furthermore, he hasn't scored a goal since Feb. 10 - a span of 23 games. We hate to say it, but the end is probably in sight for the 36-year-old Milan Hejduk at this point. He's currently playing out a one-year contract with the Avs and it's hard to see him coming back next season. With a strong nucleus of up-and-coming young talent led by Matt Duchene and Gabriel Landeskog, the team will probably choose not to re-sign him. Look for Hejduk to either retire or move on to another team in need of a veteran presence.

Milan Hejduk, RW, COL Avs' Hejduk Demoted To Fourth LIne

Avs' Hejduk Demoted To Fourth LIne

News: Milan Hejduk played on the fourth line during Thursday's 2-0 loss to Columbus. He saw just 14:47 minutes of ice time, including 1:55 on the power play, but had zero shots on goal.
Analysis: You can't really blame coach Joe Sacco for trying to light a fire under Milan Hejduk, who has scored at least 20 goals in 11 consecutive seasons but has just 13 so far this year. The good news is, Hejduk's stay on the fourth line is probably only temporary. However, any way you look at it, he's just not producing right now, making him a risky fantasy play most nights. Go with other options until he can find a way to right the ship.

Avs' Hejduk Back In Lineup Monday Following Groin Injury

News: Milan Hejduk (groin) will return to the lineup Monday against Anaheim, the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Milan Hejduk, who missed Saturday's 4-3 road win over Detroit, will return to play right wing on the Avs' second line alongside Paul Stastny and Matt Duchene. Feel free to get him back into your lineups at this point, however it's worth noting that prior to the injury, Hejduk had just three points in his previous 10 games.
