He was able to skate on Monday but he isn't expected to play in any of Colorado's last three matches of 2014-15. Winchester suffered a concussion during the preseason that kept him on the sidelines for the entire year. Hopefully, he will be able to resume his career next season.

I'm trying anything and everything to get healthy." He is feeling much better and is still waiting to make his Avalanche debut in the regular season.

Jesse Winchester is not ready to return to action just yet.

He will not play Saturday night against Philadelphia as he still needs a little more time to recover from a concussion. Until Winchester is entirely symptom free he will not be permitted to suit up so if you have him on your fantasy squad (and we are not sure why anyone would) keep him on reserve.

Jesse Winchester (concussion) won't be rushed back into the lineup.

"We're not going to push on him," coach Patrick Roy said. "We'll follow the protocol and make sure he's 100 percent when he comes up. We're never going to force our players to come back. And we're certainly not going to push them to come back either." It was thought that Winchester could return on Thursday, but the Avalanche have apparently hit the brakes on that.
