Toews (undisclosed) was designated for non-roster injured reserve Monday.

The Avs have kept a tight lid on both the nature and recovery timeline for Toews following offseason surgery. The fact that the British Columbia native wasn't placed on long-term IR should be an indication the club expects him back some time in the next 10 games. Bowen Byram and Kurtis MacDermid should see the biggest uptick in minutes with Toews sidelined.
