Colorado Avalanche place Foote on injured reserve with arm injury

DENVER – The Colorado Avalanche have placed defenceman Adam Foote on injured reserve with a triceps injury.

The move is retroactive to Sunday, when Foote left in the second period of a 2-0 loss to Minnesota.

Avalanche coach Tony Granato said Tuesday that Foote was apparently hurt in a collision or when he finished off a check.

Colorado called up Philippe Dupuis from the Lake Erie Monsters of the American Hockey League. He’s expected to be ready for Tuesday’s game at Nashville.
