Joey Hishon couldn't skate with the Avalanche on Sunday due to a groin injury.

Hishon is regarded as day-to-day and obviously we still have a lot time to go before the start of the regular season. He's missed the vast majority of the last two seasons due to concussions.

Joey Hishon (concussion) said that he's feeling great.

It looks like Hishon will be available for Colorado's training camp. Hishon missed almost two years with a concussion returning in 2012-13. He unfortunately only lasted nine games with the AHL Lake Erie Monsters before suffering another head injury. He's only 21 years old and was taken with the 17th overall pick in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.

Avalanche prospect Joey Hishon is reportedly feeling better of late after suffering his second concussion in recent memory.

Hishon continues to undergo treatment for the head injury, but doctors are encouraged by the progress he has made."I think the stress and anxiety produced by the latest one was originally a concern, but his symptoms have improved," said Dr. Daniel Gallucci, one of the doctors treating Hishon at the Carrick Institute in Marietta, Georgia. The doctor indicated Hishon plans to work out vigorously during the summer in preparation for next season, which is certainly encouraging.

Joey Hishon suffered a head injury when knocked into the boards from behind Friday in an AHL game.

While the Avs are not calling it a concussion, Hishon, Colorado's first pick and 17th overall in the 2010 Draft, missed almost two years after suffering a bad concussion in the 2011 Memorial Cup when hit by Brayden Schenn. He finally returned to action last month and had a goal and six points in nine games before getting hit by Joey Tenute Friday. We hope he has a speedy recovery.

Joey Hishon will play in his first game since May 21, 2011 on Tuesday when the Lake Erie Monsters host the Toronto Marlies.

Hishon was drafted 17th overall in the 2010 Draft but a bad concussion during the Memorial Cup on a hit by Brayden McNabb has kept him out of game action for almost two years. Congratulations to Hishon on his return and we hope he has good health for the remainder of his career. Hishon had 87 points in 50 games during his last OHL season. He needs plenty of playing time and will get that at the AHL level.

Joey Hishon begun the 2012-13 AHL season on injured reserve with a head injury and he hasn't joined Lake Erie yet.

He suffered a concussion in the 2011 Memorial Cup and hasn't played since. In his final season of OHL play in 2010-11, Hishon recorded 37 goals and 87 points in 50 games prior to posting 24 points in 22 playoff contests. He expressed optimism in his recovery this past spring, so hopefully he can get back on the ice soon.

Joey Hishon is finally feeling better after sustaining a concussion in the 2011 Memorial Cup on a hit from Buffalo Sabres rookie Brayden McNabb.

The Avalanche's first-round pick in 2010, Hishon hasn't seen the ice since that game, but his tweet Monday offers up hope that he may have turned the corner. "I am now on the proper path to recovery and working towards becoming a professional athlete like I have always dreamed of." He credits a Hyperbaric oxygen therapy center in Ohio for his improved health, and it now looks as if there is at least the possibility that he will be at Colorado's training camp this fall.

It has been almost a year since Joey Hishon was concussed during the Memorial Cup and he is still not back on the ice.

It's a shame that the Avs first pick in the 2010 Entry Draft (17th overall) is still suffering the effects of being elbowed in the head by Brayden McNabb, then of the Kootenay Ice of the WHL. Just an FYI on the talented player.

Joey Hishon is not participating in rookie camp because of concussion-like symptoms.

Hishon suffered the injury when he was elbowed in the head during the Memorial Cup at the end of last season. Hishon hoped initially that it was minor but it looks now that this is not the case. The Avalanche did not count on him to crack the roster this season but he should have considerable fantasy value down the road.

Joey Hishon is still battling concussion-like symptoms after being elbowed in the head during the Memorial Cup.

Hishon was recently looked over by the Avalanche medical staff while the team held it's summer development camp. "This is just a very minor thing that we're taking seriously to make sure nothing reoccurs down the road," Hishon said. He'll battle for a roster spot if he's healthy by the time training camp starts.

Joey Hishon (head) won't be able to play on Wednesday night in Owen Sound's final game of round robin action at the Memorial Cup.

He was elbowed in the head by Kootenay Ice defenseman Brayden McNabb and this will mark the second straight game that he has missed. He has passed a baseline test but coach Mark Reeds said the Colorado prospect isn't ready to return just yet. The Attack haven't called his injury a concussion and he is listed as day-to-day. If Owen Sound can defeat the Mississauga St. Michael's Majors on Wednesday then they will advance to the semifinals of the tournament. The loser of the contest will face Kootenay on Thursday in a tie-breaker.
