Colorado Avalanche defenseman Devon Toews will miss the start of the season due to offseason shoulder surgery, coach Jared Bednar told reporters on Wednesday.
Toews underwent surgery shortly after last season ended. He is skating but Bednar said he hasn’t been cleared for contract.
Back in 2018, he missed 4-6 months after shoulder surgery while in the Islanders organization.
