Observations:

May 2016 – Hishon has decided to play in Finland next season rather than stay in North America where he likely wouldn've had to settle for another AHL job. In 63 games this season (his healthiest in some time), he managed a respectable 43 points. He is on the path to fantasy irrelevance, but still has the skill to earn another brief shot down the road. Hayden Soboleski

 

February 2016 – Hishon has returned from injury with six points in six games. Remaining healthy for the rest of the season will be critical towards his chances of earning a contract this off-season, as his good production for most of this year has shown the value hidden on IR far too often. Hayden Soboleski

 

January 2016 – Hishon has battled various upper-body injuries this month, missing several games and is currently out of the line-up. This bodes very poorly for his chances of getting called-up, which likely would have happened, if only briefly, before his contract expires this spring. Hayden Soboleski

 

January 2016 – Hishon recently scored his tenth goal of the season, giving him 25 points in 35 games this season. Staying healthy has been an enormous step forward for the oft-injured centerman, and if he remains a consistant figure in the lineup he is likely to be called-up before the end of the season, as the Avalanche will need to test him before his contract expires this spring.

September 2015 – Hishon has been assigned to the AHL to start the 2015-16 season. He was expected to compete for a bottom-six role with the Avalanche this season, but the deeper talent pool made this a tough task. Hishon should receive ample playing time in San Antonio, and willl likely be high on the list for injury-necessitated call-ups throughout the season. Hayden Soboleski

 

May 2015 – After scoring 36 points (16 goals, 20 assists) in 53 games in the AHL, Hishon was called up to the Avalanche for the remainder of the season. He promptly injured his neck (missed one game) and then elbow (missed five games), finishing the season with 13 NHL games and two points (one goal, one assist). Injuries continue to hinder Hishon’s development, but his extended look with the Avalanche this season is a positive reminder that the team still thinks highly of his potential. Hayden Soboleski

 

September 2013 – Joey Hishon suffers from a groin injury, forcing him to have missed all of training camp so far. Hishon a promising forward has suffered some significant concussion issues over his career and hope for his NHL career is dwindling. A groin injury during camp is a major setback for anyone hoping to see Hishon in an NHL sweater. Up to this point injuries has seriously stalled Hishon's career. Andrew Ward

 

March 2013 – Joey Hishon scored his first pro goal and added an assist for his first multipoint game as a pro against the Chicago Wolves March 29th. In five games played Hishon has tallied one goal and two assists. Hishon ha
