Avs' Tanguay Skates Tuesday

News: Alex Tanguay (knee) took to the ice for an optional skate over the weekend, the Chicago Tribune reports.
Analysis: No, Alex Tanguay is not gearing up for a return to the lineup for Wednesday's Game 7 against the Wild. He's still slated to miss the rest of the season and looks to just be getting some conditioning work in as he recovers from February hip surgery.

Avs' Tanguay Done For Season

News: Alex Tanguay -- who has been dealing with a knee issue -- will undergo season-ending hip surgery on Friday, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: The report notes that the hip problem the surgery will address was a factor in Alex Tanguay's knee problem. The veteran forward, who last suited up on Jan. 30, thus finishes the 2013-14 season with 11 points in 16 games.

Avs' Tanguay To Miss Fifth Straight

News: Alex Tanguay (knee) will not play Saturday against the Islanders, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Alex Tanguay's sore knee left him unable to practice Friday, and he'll miss his fifth consecutive game as a result. Though the knee has caused problems for him all season, the Avalanche don't appear to be concerned about this latest setback, believing he'll be back in the lineup when play resumes after the break.

Avs' Tanguay Iffy Thursday

News: Alex Tanguay (knee) was not on the ice for Thursday's morning skate, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: As a result, Alex Tanguay, who last suited up on Jan. 30, remains very iffy for Thursday's game against the Flyers, with the report adding that he probably won't play again before the Olympic break.

Alex Tanguay

Avs' Tanguay Out Again Tuesday

News: Alex Tanguay (knee) will not play Tuesday against the Rangers, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: As anticipated, Alex Tanguay will miss his third straight game while he recovers from the knee injury. The team is still considering him day-to-day, but it's growing increasingly doubtful that he'll be back before the break for the Winter Olympics.

Avs' Tanguay Questionable For Tuesday

News: Alex Tanguay (knee) is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Rangers, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: The Avalanche elected not to hold a morning skate Tuesday following Monday's draining overtime victory over the Devils, preventing an update on Alex Tanguay's status from being relayed. Tanguay has been a spectator for the last three games, and he would probably need a high-quality pregame skate for coach Patrick Roy to include him in the lineup Tuesday.

Alex Tanguay

Avs' Tanguay Out Again Monday

News: Alex Tanguay (knee) will sit out Monday's game against the Devils, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Alex Tanguay will miss his second straight game as the Avalanche begin a four-game road trip this week. The forward is traveling with the Avs and could be an option later in the week, depending on how he progresses in his recovery.

Avs' Tanguay Ruled Out Saturday

News: Alex Tanguay (knee) will not play Saturday against the Sabres, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: With Alex Tanguay's knee issues flaring up just a week after he returned from a lengthy absence, the Avalanche won't take any chances in risking further injury Saturday. There's been no word yet regarding the severity of the setback for Tanguay. P.A. Parenteau will take his spot in Saturday's lineup.

Avs' Tanguay Misses Practice Friday

News: Alex Tanguay (knee) will not practice with the Avalanche on Friday.
Analysis: Alex Tanguay returned to the lineup last week after dealing with a knee injury and scored his fourth goal of the season in Monday's game against the Stars. He is being evaluated Friday with a knee injury and his status will likely be determined in the next few days.

Avs' Tanguay Scores In Return From Injury

News: Alex Tanguay scored his fourth goal of the season in Monday's 4-3 win over Dallas.
Analysis: This season has been a frustrating one for Alex Tanguay as knee and hip injuries have kept him out of the lineup for 36 games until his return last week. He played Friday at Florida, sat out again Saturday at Tampa Bay as a precaution, then was back in the lineup Monday against the Stars. Barring any further setbacks, he should be a regular fixture in the Avs' lineup going forward.

Avs' Tanguay Will Play Friday, Sit Saturday

News: Alex Tanguay (knee) will play Friday against the Panthers but will not play Saturday against the Lightning, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: It seems Alex Tanguay showed enough in Friday's morning skate to get the green light to play against Florida, but coach Patrick Roy doesn't want to push him too hard right off the bat, so he'll sit him down for the second half of the team's back-to-back set. Tanguay has been out since Nov. 2 with the knee injury.

Decision On Avs' Tanguay Coming Friday Morning

News: The Avalanche will make a determination for Alex Tanguay's (knee) status for Friday's game vs. the Panthers following that day's morning skate.
Analysis: The general expectation is that Alex Tanguay will return to the lineup after practicing fully the last couple of days, but it's possible the team could decide against activating the forward Friday to buy him some recovery time. In any case, a return from IR is right around the corner for Tanguay, who has been limited to just 13 games this season.

Avs' Tanguay Expected Back Friday

News: Alex Tanguay (knee) is expected to return from injured reserve for Friday's game against the Panthers, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Coach Patrick Roy hasn't confirmed that Alex Tanguay will be in Friday's lineup, but it would seem that's likely the case after Brad Malone was reassigned to AHL Lake Erie on Wednesday. Tanguay hasn't played since Nov. 2 as he dealt with the knee and hip injuries, so he might not be able to reclaim his old top-six role immediately upon returning.

Avs' Tanguay Won't Be Back Tuesday

News: Alex Tanguay (knee) skated hard during practice Monday, but won't play in Tuesday's game against the Maple Leafs, the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Alex Tanguay seems to be nearing a return and hasn't been ruled out for Friday. He previously said that he has a specific date in mind, though he chose not to reveal the date.

Avs' Tanguay Close To Return

News: Alex Tanguay (knee/hip) is nearing a return and has a specific date in mind that he chose not to reveal, The Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Alex Tanguay has been practicing with the team and can essentially be considered day-to-day after the weekend. He scored nine points in 13 games, prior to suffering a knee injury Nov. 2. Tanguay then dealt with a hip issue during his recovery, and at one point was worried that the hip would require surgery. Everything seems to have cleared up, so a return within the next week or so is likely.

Avs' Tanguay Expected To Practice Fully Friday

News: Alex Tanguay (hip/knee) is expected to take part in Thursday's morning skate, Ren Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Analysis: If all goes well for Alex Tanguay, he would likely be cleared to resume practicing fully Friday. After a slew of setbacks while recovering from a knee injury that eventually morphed into a hip issue, it seems Tanguay is finally nearing the end of the road of his rehab.

Avs' Tanguay Practices

News: Alex Tanguay (knee) practiced in a non-contact jersey Thursday, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Alex Tanguay is expected to try to participate fully in practice beginning next week, and could return to the lineup after that. The winger recorded three goals and six assists in 13 games before being injured in early November.

Avs' Tanguay Takes Part In Morning Skate

News: Alex Tanguay (knee) skated with the team at Wednesday's morning skate, the Denver Post reports. "He looked good," coach Patrick Roy said. "It's good for us. As long as things are going well for him, we're behind him on this."
Analysis: The team has not given any indication as to a possible return date for Alex Tanguay, but it sounds like he could be back sooner rather than later. How Tanguay's knee and hip respond Thursday morning will provide telling signs of how close he truly is to making it back.

Avs' Tanguay To Amp Up Rehab

News: Alex Tanguay (knee) had a positive skating session Tuesday for the second day in a row, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: It appears there's still hope the forward will play again this season, as Alex Tanguay will now amp up his activities to prove his knee and hip woes are behind him. Should he suffer a setback to the hip injury as he progresses further in his recovery, season-ending surgery would seem to be a realistic possibility.

Alex Tanguay

Avs' Tanguay Returns To Practice

News: Alex Tanguay (knee/hip) skated Monday morning and is scheduled to skate again Tuesday.
Analysis: Alex Tanguay took an important step in the rehab process Monday, making it through a skating session without issue. He's been out since Nov. 2 with knee and hip injuries, so he's probably not a good bet to suit up before the end of the week. Prior to suffering the knee injury, Tanguay had nine points (three goals) in 13 appearances.

Avs' Tanguay Could Skate By End Of Week

News: Coach Patrick Roy said that Alex Tanguay (knee/hip) could resume skating by the end of week, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Alex Tanguay is dealing with both knee and hip injuries at the moment and was previously believed to be at risk of missing the rest of the season, but the Avalanche have rowed back from those claims after the forward demonstrated some progress in recent weeks. Roy said that there remains no clear timetable for Tanguay's return from IR, but the Avalanche could have a better idea once they seem his start skating again.

Avs' Tanguay Receives Positive News In Recovery

News: Alex Tanguay (knee) indicated he was feeling better Saturday but remains without a timetable for his return, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Coach Patrick Roy suggested last week that Alex Tanguay had suffered a serious setback last week in his recovery from the injury, but it appears things aren't entirely as dire as they once appeared. While Roy didn't want to throw out a possible return date for the forward, it sounds like the team is optimistic he could return to practice soon. Once that happens, expect a firmer timetable to be hashed out.

Avs' Tanguay Has Major Setback In Recovery

News: Alex Tanguay is now experiencing a hip problem related to his recovery from a knee injury that will continue to keep him out indefinitely, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Though it has yet to be determined, surgery could be in the works for Alex Tanguay as a result of this latest setback, potentially putting his availability for the rest of the season in question. While further details should emerge in the next few days regarding the extent of the new injury, it's apparent Tanguay won't be returning from injured reserve in the near future. The Avalanche appear to have enough forward depth to cover for his absence, but it nonetheless deprives the team of one of its top scorers for even longer than expected.

Avs' Tanguay Skips Tuesday's Practice

News: Alex Tanguay (knee) failed to practice Tuesday, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Alex Tanguay took the day off after resuming skating over the weekend, but it doesn't look as though he'll be ready to play during the team's three-game road trip beginning Thursday. If he continues to progress well while skating, he could at least be cleared for full-contact practices soon.

Avs' Tanguay Skates Saturday

News: Alex Tanguay (knee) skated at Saturday's morning practice, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Alex Tanguay appeared to be moving around well and said after the session that his knee is feeling fine. Because he's missed nearly a month due to the injury, Tanguay will probably still need to get about a week of practice in before he's activated from IR.
