Denver, CO (SportsNetwork.com) - Colorado Avalanche head coach Patrick Roy announced Friday that forward Alex Tanguay has a facial fracture and won't play in Saturday's game against the Carolina Hurricanes.
Tanguay, who leads the team with seven goals, suffered the injury in Thursday's loss to Washington. There is no prognosis on how much time he will miss.
The Avalanche also placed forwards Dennis Everberg and Jamie McGinn and defenseman Brad Stuart on injured reserve.
Everberg, a 22-year-old rookie from Sweden, is out indefinitely after suffering a separated shoulder on a third-period hit by the Capitals' Tom Wilson.
McGinn missed Thursday's game with a back injury, while Stuart hasn't played since Nov. 4 because of a hamstring injury.
The Avalanche recalled forwards Andrew Agozzino, Ben Street and Tomas Vincour from Lake Erie of the American Hockey League to fill the roster spots.
