Stay tuned for further updates.

He is projected to play Tuesday's game with Carl Soderberg and Blake Comeau, who was dropped from a top-six forward role. Tanguay had been playing with Gabriel Landeskog and Nathan MacKinnon.

Alex Tanguay scored the game winning overtime goal and added an assist in Colorado's 5-4 win over Anaheim on Tuesday.

At the tender age of 35, Tanguay is coming off one of his better campaigns where he posted 22 goals and 33 assists for 55 points in 80 games. The biggest key to the higher point totals was the fact that he was healthy after three straight injury riddled seasons. While he isn't a guy you want to target early in fantasy drafts, he is could be worth a late flyer and is probably an even better value pick in DFS. Jack Skille also added a goal and an assist in the Avalanche preseason opener.
