Peter Mueller Misses Colorado Avalanche's Game Against Ottawa Senators

After playing in the first three games of the season, Colorado Avalanche winger Peter Mueller sat out Thursday's contest against the Ottawa Senators because "he was not feeling well," reports Adrian Dater of the Denver Post. The team has not commented on whether this is related to the concussion he suffered last year, missing the entire 2010-11 campaign. 

Mueller averaged just about 14 minutes on the ice over the first three games before being scratched on Thursday night. He has played in just 18 games for the Avalanche since he was acquired via trade during the 2009-10 season.

In Mueller's place, Joakim Lindstrom played and scored two goals. Lindstrom will continue picking up playing time until Mueller's status is determined. The Avalanche play the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday.
