The Avalanche will be without Matt Hendricks for a few games, placing the gritty center on the injured reserve list today.

To add depth, the Avs recalled Ryan Stoa and former University of Denver defenseman Brett Skinner from Lake Erie.

Stoa will be in the lineup tonight against Nashville. He picked up his goal scoring at Lake Erie, with 18 in 41 games.
