News: Mitchell (head) christened his return from injured reserve Thursday against the Senators with a shorthanded goal in the first period. Impact: Mitchell saw 13:02 of ice time in his season debut, winning eight of his 14 faceoffs. He began the game on the Avs' fourth line, but it didn't take long for coach Patrick Roy to elevate him up to the third line by game's end. Though not a prominent scorer, Mitchell has been able to deliver a goal in his first game of the season for three years running.(RotoWire, )

News: Mitchell (head) will be activated from injured reserve and play Thursday against the Senators, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports. Impact: Coach Patrick Roy said that Mitchell would be used as either a center or wing on the first line in his season debut. Mitchell thrived as the Avs' third-line center of choice last season with 32 points and a plus-13 rating over 75 games, but the additions of Jarome Iginla, Dennis Everberg and a healthy Alex Tanguay to the Avs' top-nine forward ranks could relegate Mitchell to bottom-line duty until further notice.(RotoWire, )

Impact: Mitchell has shown some improvement in his bout with migraines in recent days, but not significant enough to allow him to play in Thursday's season opener.
