Joey Hishon likely has the best shot at making the Avalanche amongst the organization's pool of rookies, as the 2010 first-round pick will come to training camp with a lot to offer Colorado if he stays healthy.

Hishon, 22, is a fierce and energetic forward who can skate and score at a high level. Hishon is a productive center but has been plagued by significant injuries through each of the last four seasons. When healthy, the 5’10, 175 pounder knows how to generate offense, but will have to show some poise during training camp if he hopes to work amongst the Avs' gifted group of forwards.

The Avalanche have extended a qualifying offer to forward Joey Hishon.

Hishon spent the entire regular season with Lake Erie of the AHL scoring 10 goals and registering 24 points in 50 minor league games. He did get a chance to play in two playoff games with Colorado, however, earning an assist in a Game 7 loss to Minnesota. Hishon has no fantasy value going forward.

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 still has not been cleared to play from his concussion, but he has resumed skating with AHL Lake Erie.

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

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.
