Alex Tanguay LW COL 3 Days

Tanguay scored a goal, added an assist, went plus-2 and was stuck with two PIM in Tuesday's win over the Blues.

Quite the stat-stuffing evening for Tanguay, who's been scoring inconsistently, but has ridden a trio of big games to a total of seven points in his last six contests. However, his lack of shots on goal is pretty concerning, as Tanguay -- never a prolific shooter in the first place -- has posted zeroes in that column in four of the last seven games.

Tanguay scored two goals and added one assist in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Sabres.

He has five points (two goals, three assists) in his last four games and 10 in his last 10. He's delivering reasonable output for his fantasy owners in deep leagues.

Tanguay dished out a pair of assists, went plus-2 and added two penalty minutes Thursday against the Jets.

He went without a shot on goal for the second straight game and third in the last five, but hey, at least Tanguay chipped in some offense. He's actually been doing that with great regularity of late, having notched eight points in his last seven games despite going scoreless over the last two prior to Thursday's action.

Tanguay scored a goal and added two assists in the Avs' 5-2 win over the Stars on Saturday.

Tanguay now has 15 points in 22 games this season and playing some of his best hockey in recent memory. The 35-year-old left winger is the only holdover from the Sakic-Forsberg era and is providing a veteran presence in Colorado. He's one of head coach Patrick Roy's most trusted forwards but given his age and injury history his current scoring pace may not be sustainable. Tanguay hasn't played full season in over a decade.

Tanguay (jaw) will play Wednesday against the Blackhawks.

Tanguay was not listed among Colorado's scratches, so he will return to action after missing the last two games.

Tanguay (fractured jaw) is considered likely to play Wednesday against the Blackhawks, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports.

Tanguay appeared set to play Tuesday night in Arizona, but the Avs ended up scratching him after he was still suffering from blurred vision during the team's morning skate. This latest report would seem to indicate that Tanguay's being held out Tuesday was a precautionary measure, so assuming that he's now experiencing some improvement, it looks promising that he'll suit up. The veteran forward is tied with Matt Duchene for the team lead with seven goals on the season.

Tanguay (fractured jaw), who was expected to return to the lineup Tuesday against the Coyotes, will instead miss his second consecutive game, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.

After it was indicated a day earlier that Tanguay wouldn't have to miss further time due to the jaw injury, coach Patrick Roy said the forward was still experiencing blurred vision and pain on the side of his head following Tuesday's morning skate. Fortunately, it doesn't sound like the setback is significant for Tanguay at the moment, so with an extra day off, the possibility exists that he could be ready to go when the Avs return home for a game Wednesday versus the Blackhawks.

Tanguay (face) has been cleared by doctors and will play against the Coyotes on Tuesday, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports.

Tanguay was hit in the face with a puck in Thursday's game against the Capitals and was forced to miss Colorado's game on Saturday. It was originally feared that he would be out indefinitely, but after further evaluation it was determined that the injury was not long-term. In 20 appearances this season, the 35-year-old winger has seven goals and four assists.

The Avs are labeling Tanguay (facial fracture) as day-to-day reports.

It appeared the Avalanche were going with the "out indefinitely" tag with Tanguay after he took a puck to the face Thursday night, but their evaluation Friday evidently showed the injury wasn't severe as expected. He'll still be forced out of action Saturday against the Hurricanes, with his availability in question for the team's next game Tuesday as well.
