  • Hejda Will Attend Hawks Camp On Tryout Offer

    News: Jan Hejda has accepted a tryout offer with the Blackhawks, according to Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch.
    Analysis: He's a long shot to make the club, but he could do well enough to earn the six/seven spot. However, that doesn't mean there's any fantasy value there.
  • Avs' Hejda Likely Done In Denver

    News: Jan Hejda, an unrestricted free agent, is not expected to re-sign with Colorado, the Denver Post reports.
    Analysis: In 2014, Jan Hejda contributed 13 points with a plus/minus of -12 through 81 games. Since the Avs are reportedly going to look elsewhere for defensive help, Hejda will look to catch on as a depth player elsewhere.
  • Avs' Hejda Likely To Play Tuesday

    News: Jan Hejda (knee) appears in line to play Tuesday against the Predators, Rick Sadowski of NHL.com reports.
    Analysis: Jan Hejda took part in Tuesday's morning skate after the knee injury prevented him from playing in Sunday's game against the Lightning. It was the only match the blueliner, who has nine points and a minus-6 rating over 59 games, has missed this season.
  • Avs' Hejda (Knee) Considered Day-To-Day

    News: Jan Hejda (knee) is day-to-day.
    Analysis: Jan Hejda missed Sunday's game against the Lightning, and he can be considered questionable for Tuesday's tilt with the Predators. He only has nine points (one goal) in 59 games this season.
  • Avs' Hejda Will Sit Sunday

    News: Jan Hejda is dealing with a knee injury and will not play in Sunday's game against the Lightening, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.
    Analysis: Jan Hejda should be considered day-to-day moving forward with his knee injury. His next opportunity to take the ice will be against the Predators on Tuesday.
  • Avs' Hejda Finally Scores

    News: Jan Hejda scored his first goal of the season Thursday, but also went minus-3 in a loss to the Rangers.
    Analysis: A bit of a mixed bag for Jan Hejda, but at least he got the monkey off his back after 54 games this season without a goal. He's still not of much interest in fantasy circles.
  • Avs' Hejda Active In Victory

    News: Jan Hejda accumulated an assist, two PIM, two hits and four blocked shots in his 21:46 of ice time Thursday versus the Senators.
    Analysis: Don't expect much scoring in the future for Jan Hejda, who has never totaled more than 21 points in a season and has just six in 41 games so far in 2014-15. He'll bring his most utility in the form of hits and blocks, as he ranks second on the Avs in both categories.
  • Avs' Hejda Picks Up Assist

    News: Jan Hejda was credited with an assist in his 22:18 of ice time in Thursday's win over the Jets.
    Analysis: Jan Hejda holds down a top-pairing role for the Avs, but he's valued mostly for what he contributes in the hits and blocked shots categories than for any puck-moving. The assist marked just his fifth point in 29 games on the season.
  • Avs' Hejda Dishes Two Helpers

    News: Jan Hejda assisted on both of Colorado's goals in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Sharks.
    Analysis: Jan Hejda's not known as much of an offensive contributor, but what he has been contributing in spades so far are hits and blocks -- 29 and 17, respectively. That gives him solid value in fantasy formats that count those peripheral stats.
  • Avs' Hejda Played With Two Broken Fingers

    News: Jan Hejda played with two broken fingers in Round 1 against the Wild, the Denver Post reports.
    Analysis: With two broken digits and a pin inserted into his thumb, the 35-year-old Czech is yet another example of a player valiantly battling through a significant injury in the postseason. It's unclear as to how or when Jan Hejda hurt his hand, but it was evident something was wrong as he finished the series pointless with a minus-6 rating and dropped his stick on several occasions. In bittersweet fashion, the Avs' heartbreaking overtime loss at home in Game 7 will allow his hand plenty of time to heal up in preparation for training camp in September. Furthermore, it appears that Hejda -- who was second on the Avs in average ice time this season behind partner Erik Johnson -- still has gas in the tank, so look for him to play another key shutdown role in Colorado's top-two D pairs in what will be the final year of his contract.
