It’s been a tough couple seasons for Colorado Avalanche forward Peter Mueller, but there might be a little light at the end of the tunnel. The Denver Post’s Adrian Dater reports that Mueller has been activated from the injured reserve and might even play against the Nashville Predators on Thursday.

Mueller has been struggling with concussion issues ever since Rob Blake caught him with a brutal hit toward the end of the 2009-10 campaign. He missed all of the 2010-11 season and barely played in this one before those problems came crawling back.

There was (and let’s be honest, to some extent, still is) some concern that his career was in danger of being over altogether, so if he could play most or all of this season’s remaining games, it would be one of the feel-good stories in hockey.
