Veteran right wing Milan Hejduk practiced with the Avalanche on Wednesday and is expected to play in Thursday's game at Minnesota. Hejduk has missed five games because of a stiff neck, he said, after absorbing a check at Columbus on March 3. "I woke up and I couldn't move," Hejduk said. The 37-year-old Hejduk practiced on the Paul Stastny-centered line, with left wing Gabriel Landeskog, but coach Joe Sacco said he's not sure if he will keep that trio together.Struggling power forward David Jones, who has just three goals in 23 games, has been playing with Stastny all season.He practiced with center Ryan O'Reilly and left wing John Mitchell on Wednesday.
