Hejda accumulated an assist, two PIM, two hits and four blocked shots in his 21:46 of ice time Thursday versus the Senators.Don't expect much scoring in the future for 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.

Hejda was credited with an assist in his 22:18 of ice time in Thursday's win over the Jets.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.

Hejda assisted on both of Colorado's goals in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Sharks.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 coach Patrick Roy said Wednesday that Hejda (knee) is still on pace to return to the lineup Saturday against the Wild.So long as Hejda continues to progress without setback, it seems likely that he'll beat the 10-14 day timetable initially set for his return from a knee sprain. Fellow blue liner Ryan Wilson (back) is also on track for a Saturday return.

Hejda (knee) could return to action Saturday against the Wild.The decision will be made based on how Hejda progresses during practice this week, but his return appears imminent barring no further setbacks. In addition, fellow defenseman Ryan Wilson is on a similar return timetable as Hejda, potentially putting the Avs back at full strength defensively before the weekend's out.

Hejda (knee) could return Saturday against Minnesota or next Monday against Dallas, the Denver Post reports.Hejda hopes to resume skating this week, which would presumably give him a shot to suit up over the weekend. He owns an impressive plus-17 rating through 26 games, and is targeting a return at the beginning of his 10-to-14 day timetable.

Hejda will be out for 10-to-14 days with a knee sprain.The Avalanche had expressed optimism that the knee injury Hejda suffered Thursday night wasn't serious, and it appears that's the case, though he'll still miss a decent chunk of time. At least he won't do any further damage to his plus/minus rating, which currently sits at a robust plus-17 through 26 games, good for fourth in the NHL.

Hejda (knee) is headed back to Denver for tests, but Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports that the injury is not as serious as originally thought.Dater's exact words were, "this is not a catastrophic injury to the important Avs defenseman" which is obviously encouraging but nothing should be assumed until x-rays and an MRI are done. More should be known over the weekend, so for now, just consider him day-to-day.

Hejda suffered a knee injury during Thursday's game and will not return.The injury comes at a disappointing team, as Hejda had three points in his past four games heading into Thursday's action. He also carries a ridiculous plus-17 rating through 26 appearances, which is good for second place in the entire NHL.

Hejda was credited with an assist in Friday's win over the Wild and finished the game with a plus-3 rating.It was the third straight game in which Hejda gathered a helper, giving him a total of nine points on the season. It's in the plus/minus category where he's really been a difference-maker in the fantasy game, however, as his plus-17 rating now ties him with the Sharks' Justin Braun for the league-wide defenseman lead.
