News: Coach Patrick Roy confirmed Winchester (concussion) won't return this season.
Impact: Winchester appeared to be making progress with his post-concussion symptoms as recently as a couple of weeks ago, when he was cleared to travel with the team, but it appears he might have suffered yet another setback in his recovery. With Winchester's long-term health the most important matter, he won't be rushed into action over the Avs' final three games. He didn't play a single game this season after sustaining the concussion during training camp.

News: Winchester (concussion) has been cleared to travel with the Avalanche during their road trip, Terry Frei of the Denver Post reports.
Impact: Winchester appears to have put his long battle with post-concussion symptoms behind him, but it's not apparent when or if he'll enter the lineup again this season. He has yet to play all season after enduring the concussion during training camp, and with repeated setbacks interrupting his progress along the way, the Avalanche may be inclined to have him pack it for the year and prepare for camp next fall.
