Right-winger Milan Hejduk has moved to Ryan O'Reilly's line, with rookie Gabriel Landeskog.
Hejduk moves down to the second line where he will flank two youngsters. The new captain is second on the team in goals and points and should have no drop off playing with the same forwards he frequently plays with on the power play.
Goalie Semyon Varlamov and four others did not participate in today's Avalanche practice. Forwards Milan Hejduk, David Jones and Peter Mueller and defenseman Kyle Quincey also didn't skate with the team today.
Likely just maintenance days. Should there be any injuries, we will fill you in.
