Oft-injured forward Peter Mueller is skating at Avalanche practice today, centering a line with Gabriel Landeskog and Milan Hejduk?.

He's there, in part, because Avalanche leading scorer Ryan O'Reilly was given a maintenance day and is not practicing with the team.

O'Reilly said he's simply nursing "some bumps and bruises, and a little lace bite," referring to irritation of the skin because of tight skates.
