Colorado Avalanche center Peter Mueller will not return to the ice for the opener of a home-and-home set against the Chicago Blackhawks on Thursday.
Mueller is nursing a head injury which has sidelined him since a 3-2 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Oct. 12.
"Feeling great. Just, you know, getting everything back in the loop and waiting for my time to (get the) call," Mueller told the Denver Post.
Mueller had played in the team's first three games after missing all of last season due to the aftereffects of a concussion.
In the 2009-10 season, Mueller played 69 games for the Phoenix Coyotes and Avalanche, collecting 13 goals and 24 assists.
Colorado (5-1-0) has won five straight since dropping its season opener against the Detroit Red Wings. The Blackhawks are 3-1-1 on the campaign.

Colorado, who came back to town after winning 5 straight road games (a franchise record, the last time they won 4 in a row they were in Quebec) lost to the Blackhawks on Thursday. They remained perfect at home, 0 - 2, with what has to be a won - lost record that is strange, to say the least. Some new Av’s faces included Varlamov (from Washington, a LOT more on him later), Jan Hejda...
In a Thursday night SEL game, Per Ledin of HV71 got into a scrum near the Frölunda HC bench, pinning an opponent against the boards. Ledin's stick dangled over into the opponents' bench; that's when a mischievous winger named Jari Tolsa grabbed the stick blade, yanked the lumber out of Ledin's hands and into the Frölunda bench.
This did not sit well with Ledin....

DENVER -- It's a surging Colorado Avalanche team the Chicago Blackhawks will face Thursday night at the Pepsi Center in Denver.
CHICAGO – It’s pretty early here on a Saturday morning, and I’d like to still be sleeping probably, but am not. Partially, that’s because it’s too cold in the room. Why? Because of these stupid new thermometers in hotel rooms that are impossible to figure out. I turn it up to what says 75 degrees, and it blows hot air for a while, then it blows really cold...
