Avalanche forward Hejduk to be out 2-4 weeks with knee injury

DENVER – Colorado Avalanche forward Milan Hejduk will undergo an arthroscopic procedure on his knee and is expected to be out for the next two-to-four weeks.

Hejduk has missed several games this season because of the injury, including a 3-1 win over the New Jersey Devils on Saturday.

The Avalanche’s website said that during practice Sunday, T.J. Galiardi and Brandon Yip played the wings on a line centred by Matt Duchene, the spot usually held by the 33-year-old Hejduk.
