Alex Tanguay's season is coming to an end.

Colorado Avalanche head coach Patrick Roy said Thursday that Tanguay will have surgery on his injured hip on Friday and will miss the remainder of the season.

"He's an important player, but at the same time we did well without him," Roy told the Denver Post. "You never like to lose a player like him, but at the same time it's part of the game. It's unfortunate for us, but it will give a chance for some other guys to take over."

Tanguay had four goals and 11 assists in 16 games with the Avalanche this season. The team also had a 15-1 record with the 34-year-old in the lineup.
