ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Ryan O'Reilly is happy to have his contract issue resolved.
O'Reilly practiced with the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday morning, a little more than 36 hours after the team matched the offer sheet he signed with the Calgary Flames.
He passed a physical Friday and joined the team on the ice for the first time this season. He will be in the lineup when the Avalanche play at Columbus on Sunday.
``I feel good, I feel healthy and I can't wait to play hockey again,'' he said after the hour-long practice.
O'Reilly will jump right in after missing the first five weeks of the season. He will center Colorado's third line and skate with forwards John Mitchell and Milan Hejduk.
