Mitchell (oblique) will play Tuesday against the Devils, Marc Moser of the Altitude Radio Network reports. Mitchell has missed 11 of the Avalanche's last 13 games with an oblique injury, but has finally recovered from the ailment, and will return to game action Tuesday against New Jersey. The 30-year-old center has been relatively productive when healthy this season, potting five goals in 13 games. He will likely return to a bottom-six role in Tuesday's tilt.
Coach Patrick Roy indicated Monday that Mitchell (oblique) will likely return to the lineup Tuesday, Terry Frei of the Denver Post reports. Mitchell's oblique injury has held him out for most of the month of November, but it looks as though that absence could come to an end Tuesday. As a result of the news, Mitchell can effectively ruled out for Monday's contest, but the forward's return will be welcomed and should shore up the Avalanche's bottom six.
Mitchell (oblique) remains day-to-day, Terry Frei of The Denver Post reports. Mitchell has missed eight of the past 10 games and it seems that he's all but ruled out for Wednesday's home contest against the Senators. The 30-year-old has five goals representing his only points thus far in 2015-16.
Mitchell (oblique) will miss Monday's contest against the Jets, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports. It will be the eighth time out of the last 10 games Mitchell will be held out of the lineup with the oblique injury, as Chris Wagner will continue to fill in during his absence. His next chance to suit back up will come Wednesday against the Senators.
Mitchell (oblique) won't play Thursday against the Penguins, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports. Mitchell has now missed six of Colorado's last eight games with an oblique injury.
