Avs’ Jones activated, should play tonight for Jiggy homecoming game; no suspension for Torres

ANAHEIM – Matt Duchene is out, but David Jones is back in. That’s the word I’m hearing, even though the Avs did not have a morning skate today here in sunny Southern California.

By the way, Jan...

Postgame Avs-Coyotes – a win, but what about Dutchy?

AAron Ontiveroz, The Denver Post First off, I don’t know how bad it is. Asked a lot of people after the game tonight, and nobody seems to know just how bad Matt Duchehe’s right knee is. Yes, I tried Duchene himself, but no response. That means a long wait ’til tomorrow for Avs fans, when more word should be known. I won’t make any predictions. It’s up to the doctors to...
