The Colorado Avalanche announced Tuesday that they have re-signed veteran forward Andrew Cogliano on a one-year deal.
“Andrew has been such a big part of our Stanley Cup championship with his leadership and presence as a veteran,” Avalanche executive vice president and general manager Joe Sakic said in a press release. “He fought back from various injuries during the playoffs and played key minutes for us when we needed it most. He’s a great teammate who works hard on and off the ice and sets a great example for the rest of the group.
“We’re delighted to have him back for another season.”
The 35-year-old Cogliano was acquired from San Jose by the Avs in March in exchange for a 2024 fifth-round pick. He had one assist in 18 regular season games for Colorado and six points (three goals and three assists) in 16 playoff games to help the Avs win the Stanley Cup.
