Hello, fellow puck-heads. Yes, our beloved Avs are sitting idle, waiting for next season to begin (it can’t happen soon enough if you ask me), but they are still making news.
Unrestricted Free Agent Milan Hejduk has inked a single year deal with the Avalanche. This will keep Hegie around for at least one more season. Hejduk has been a mainstay with the club since the 1999-2000 season and is a perennial 20 goal scorer. The Czech Republic native is ranked among the top five all-time franchise leaders in almost every offensive category and has brought home plenty of hardware – The Maurice “Rocket” Richard Trophy, The Calder Trophy, and Lord Stanley’s Cup in 2000-01.
Thanks, Milan. Here’s to another splendid year!!!
