Andrew Cogliano re-signs with Avalanche on 1-year deal
The Colorado Avalanche on Tuesday announced it has re-signed veteran forward Andrew Cogliano to a one-year contract.
“Andrew was such a big part of our Stanley Cup championship with his leadership and veteran presence,” Avalanche executive vice president and general manager Joe Sakic said in a news release. “He battled back from various injuries throughout the playoffs and played key minutes for us when we needed it the 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 excited to have him back for another season.”
Cogliano, 35, was acquired by the Avs in March from San Jose in exchange for a 2024 fifth-round pick. He had one assist in 18 regular-season games for Colorado, and tallied six points (three goals and three assists) in 16 playoffs games to help the Avs win the Stanley Cup.
