Description: Avalanche left wing Alex Tanguay a bit of a wild-card heading into the 2014-15 season.
Insight: He was limited to only 16 games a season ago, after having to undergo knee surgery. However, if healthy, Tanguay should be able to produce around 50 points, with 60 points not being out of reach. He will most likely go undrafted, but owners should not forget his name, as a potential waiver pickup.

Insight: Tanguay hasn't played since Nov. 2 due to a hip injury and was in danger of missing the entire season if he needed surgery, but after testing it for the past few weeks he was deemed healthy enough to play.
 
1/16/2014 5:28:00 PM
Description: Avalanche left wing Alex Tanguay (hip) is on the verge of returning to the lineup, according to the Denver Post.
Insight: Tanguay has been testing his hip to see if he can get by without having surgery. He has three goals and nine points in 13 games this season.
 
1/8/2014 2:42:00 PM
Description: Avalanche left wing Alex Tanguay (hip) skated with the team Wednesday morning, according to the Denver Post. "He looked good," coach Patrick Roy said. "It's good for us.

11/16/2013 3:32:00 PM
Description: Colorado head coach Patrick Roy said left wing Alex Tanguay is out indefinitely with a knee injury. SOURCE: Denver Post

Insight: Tanguay has three goals and nine points in 13 games this season. He's been skating with Paul Stastny and Gabriel Landeskog on the team's top line; if Tanguay has to miss time, rookie Nathan MacKinnon may jump into his spot.
 
10/12/2013 10:07:00 PM

Insight: Tanguay had been held without a goal in his first three games. The Patrick Roy-coached Avalanche are now 4-0 to open the season.
 
10/3/2013 9:31:00 AM
Description: Alex Tanguay's return to Colorado on Wednesday night was a success. The veteran left wing produced three assists in a 6-1 victory over the Ducks.
Insight: Two of his three helpers came on the power play. Tanguay seemed content to play the role of point guard as he didn't attempt a shot in his almost 14 minutes of action. Perhaps he'll take on more of a scorer's mentality Friday night against the Predators.
