The Avalanche are considering season-ending back surgery for Jamie McGinn.
McGinn has been out with a back injury since November 15th. He is going to be evaluated this week and the Avalanche will make a decision on whether or not McGinn needs back surgery or if he can recover without going under the knife.
McGinn missed the Avs' last three games after starting the season with three goals and two assists in 10 games. This is perfect timing for Colorado who just lost Alex Tanguay for two weeks because of a knee injury.
