The Colorado Avalanche announced Monday that defenseman Ryan Wilson has been assigned to the Lake Erie Monsters on a 14-day conditioning stint.

“We sat down with him, and I suggested it might be good for him to play five games [with Lake Erie],” said head coach Patrick Roy. “He’s going to practice with them the entire week, starting tomorrow, and then after he’s going to play [three games in three days], and then he’s going to play two more, and then he’s going to come back on Jan. 19.”

Returning from a knee injury, Wilson played in three games after being activated from injured reserved on Dec. 14th. The 26-year-old defenseman spent several other contests as a healthy scratch. Wilson has been limited to 13 games this season; as he also began the campaign on injured reserve with a hip injury.

Wilson has four points (all assists) this season, and is plus-three.

The Avalanche next play Monday night against the Calgary Flames. Nate Guenin will also miss the contest, after sustaining a foot injury during Saturday’s win over the San Jose Sharks.
