Avalanche defenceman Preissing out four to six weeks after knee scope

DENVER - The Colorado Avalanche will be without Tom Preissing for four to six weeks after the defenceman had a scope done on his right knee.

The Avalanche acquired Preissing, along with defenceman Kyle Quincey, in a deal that sent Ryan Smyth to the Los Angeles Kings during the off-season.

The 30-year-old Preissing, a former Colorado College standout, had three goals and four assists in 22 games for the Kings last season.
