Depending on how he feels, there's a chance that Jan Hejda could return from his knee injury by this weekend.
He might be able to resume skating this week, which could lead to an early return from an injury that looked much worse when it happened. Hejda has missed two games after he was hurt last Thursday against Edmonton.

Jan Hejda has been an unsung hero for Colorado early into the 2013-14 campaign.
He had a minus-17 rating, which was the worst on the team, in his first season with the Avalanche in 2011-12 and now he leads the club and stands third in the league with a plus-16 rating. "Confidence is a huge part of winning and we all have confidence right now," Hejda said. "Goalies, defensemen and forwards - everybody can see it." He also has five points, 42 hits and 33 blocked shots in 16 games.

Defenseman Jan Hejda said on Monday that the Colorado Avalanche have lost their confidence.
It happened in the game against Edmonton and the Avs are on a four game losing streak starting with that game. "Everything starts with that loss to Edmonton. We lost confidence. Everybody is trying (not) to make a mistake," Hejda said. "D-zone coverage, we have no rhythm right now ... Four games in a row we've allowed four, five, six goals against. Not acceptable. I don't know. We have to simplify it, probably."

Jan Hejda recorded two assists in Colorado's 3-2 overtime shootout loss to San Jose on Tuesday.
Hejda also played a team-high 24:51 minutes of ice-time and had four shots on goal in the contest. However, he has just five points in 17 games and has never been much of a threat offensively. Until he receives powerplay minutes, Hejda shouldn't even be considered as a potential waiver wire acquisition.
