Compher (lower body) will rejoin the lineup Wednesday against the Penguins, Marc Moser of Altitude Sports 950 reports. Compher's return should boost an Avalanche juggernaut averaging 4.40 goals per game through the first five tilts. It's worth noting that he didn't participate in power-play drills during morning skate, so he may not have a spot on the man advantage immediately upon his return. Compher is slated to serve as the right winger on the third line alongside Matt Nieto and Tyson Jost.
Compher was placed on injured reserve Monday retroactive to Oct. 5, per the NHL's official media site. This move rules Compher out for Monday's game against the Capitals but frees up a roster spot for the activation of Ian Cole (hip). Compher will be eligible to return for Wednesday's game against the Penguins.
Compher (lower body) won't play in Saturday's game versus the Coyotes, Jessi Pierce of The Athletic reports. Compher will miss his second straight game, but he's making progress after practicing with the team during Saturday's morning skate. He'll look to get back into the fold for Monday's road game versus the Capitals.
Compher (lower body) was a full participant at Friday's practice, Adrian Dater of ColoradoHockeyNow.com reports. Compher missed Thursday's game against Boston due to a lower-body injury, but he appears to be on track to rejoin the lineup for Saturday's game against Arizona. Official word on his status for that contest should surface following morning skate.
Compher (lower body) won't play in Thursday's game versus the Bruins, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports. Coach Jared Bednar said Compher hasn't skated since Saturday's win over the Wild. There isn't a clear timeline for his return, but he'll need to get a full practice session in first. If his absence extends to this Saturday's game versus the Coyotes, the Avalanche will likely place Compher on injured reserve. Tyson Jost will center the third line in his place.
