Smyth to miss two months

The Colorado Avalanche Hockey Club announced today that further medical evaluation on the injured right ankle of forward Ryan Smyth revealed a fracture and that he would be out approximately eight weeks.

“The fracture was discovered following additional medical tests which included an MRI exam,” said Avalanche Head Trainer Matthew Sokolowski. “We expect him to make a full recovery.”

Smyth suffered the injury in the overtime period of the Avalanche game at Phoenix on December 31.

The Avalanche are in tough now, as with Joe Sakic and Smyth out for extended periods, the team's forward depth is really going to be tested.

Colorado's currently right in the middle of the Western Conference, but playing in the tight Northwest Division, they could be in trouble down two pretty key cogs.

All the Avalanche have released regarding the injury so far is that Ryan Smyth cried when he heard the news.
