EDMONTON – Well, so much for Peter Mueller skating today, like I/we were led to believe. He is not out there right now as the Avs take part in their morning skate at Rexall Place. I’ll have an update afterward to try and find out more what’s going on. Everybody else on the roster is out there, including Mark Olver, freshly called up from Lake Erie. Matt Duchene is skating again, but the word I’m hearing is he won’t play tonight. I don’t think he’ll play until next week, the first home game back after this trip. But we’ll see about that too. Mueller is listed with a torso injury, and I have no reason to suspect anything other than that. I’m taking the team at their word on this, and like I’ve written before, the Avs are one of the better teams in the league about injury disclosure. Most teams just say “upper body” or “lower body” now and that’s it.

EDMONTON – Peter Mueller indeed won’t play tonight. Avs are adamant it’s a torso injury, not a concussion. I’m not disputing it. Of course, I’m unable to talk with Mueller himself, nor him to me, because it’s a strict team rule that injured players not speak to media. Matt Duchene won’t play tonight, but his status has been upgraded to day-to-day. Sounds like there...
