Peter Forsberg says he needs more practice with his teammates -- and skating at altitude -- before he plays for the Colorado Avalanche again.

Forsberg practiced with the team today. He signed a one-year prorated deal with Colorado last Monday.

Forsberg is taking a cautious approach to his return. He's not sure when he'll be ready to skate for the Avalanche. He says he could make his Colorado debut Tuesday night against Vancouver. However, the team has only one practice scheduled before then, and Forsberg isn't sure that gives him enough time.

His right foot, though, is feeling better. The foot has been bothering him for the past few seasons, but he says it's finally at a point where it's not causing him constant discomfort.
