As if missing Colorado’s first 32 games after undergoing offseason back surgery wasn’t trying enough for fourth-liner Patrick Bordeleau, now he’s got a fractured knee cap and will be out another 8-10 weeks.

Bordeleau has played just one game in 2014-15; he returned to the Avalanche lineup Saturday in Buffalo, logging 6:46 of ice time and registering two hits.

It’s not clear how Bordeleau suffered the injury. He was listed as a scratch Sunday versus Detroit.

The Avs host the Blues tonight.
