Avalanche's Logan O'Connor: Undergoes surgery

O'Connor had surgery last week to address his unspecified lower-body issue and is expected out long term, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports. Coach Jared Bednar indicated he could still get O'Connor back this season but it would likely require the Avs to make a deep run into the postseason.

Avalanche's Logan O'Connor: Out long term

O'Connor (lower body) is out "long term," Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports. O'Connor has already missed the last seven games and doesn't appear close to being healthy. The long-term designation doesn't provide a concrete return date, so it's unclear when the 24-year-old might be ready to return. O'Connor could be placed on long-term injured reserve as a paper move in the near future.

Avalanche's Logan O'Connor: Replaced by Compher

O'Connor has been a healthy scratch for games Saturday and Monday. O'Connor had been a lineup regular for nearly three weeks while Colorado dealt with injuries to the forward corps, but J.T. Compher's return from an upper-body injury dislodged him. O'Connor has three goals, 32 shots on net, 24 hits, 11 blocked shots and six PIM over 17 games.

Avalanche's Logan O'Connor: Remains in lineup

O'Connor had one blocked shot over 13:07 of ice time in Thursday's 5-1 win over the Wild. O'Connor kept his spot on the fourth line despite J.T. Compher being medically cleared to return from an upper-body injury. The forward lines have been good of late -- the Avalanche have won five straight while scoring 21 goals -- so it's likely coach Jared Bednar didn't want to disrupt combinations that are working.
