  • Avs look to build off momentum in Roy's 2nd year

    DENVER — Jarome Iginla took a few wrong turns and got lost heading into the office for his first day of work. So new to town, it's understandable the Colorado Avalanche forward can't quite navigate his way to the Pepsi Center yet. His direction on the ice, though, is impeccable. That's why the Avalanche brought his leadership to Denver,...

  • Goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere retires after 16 seasons in NHL

    DENVER — The goaltender known as "Jiggy" is stepping away from the net. Jean-Sebastien Giguere announced his retirement Thursday after 16 NHL seasons in which he won 262 games, a Conn Smythe Trophy and a Stanley Cup championship. The Colorado Avalanche say Giguere made his decision in Quebec while with the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada...

  • Settlement reached in former Avs player lawsuit

    TORONTO — A settlement has been reached in Steve Moore's lawsuit against NHL forward Todd Bertuzzi, more than 10 years after the bloody, on-ice attack ended Moore's career.

  • Avalanche sign F Ryan O'Reilly to 2-year deal, was about to do arbitration

    DENVER - The Colorado Avalanche have avoided arbitration with Ryan O'Reilly by signing the versatile forward to a two-year deal. O'Reilly led the team with a career-high 28 goals last season and won the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy, which is awarded to a player who best exemplifies gentlemanly conduct. He also had six game-winners as the...

  • Avalanche sign forward Ryan O'Reilly to 2-year deal

    DENVER — The Colorado Avalanche have avoided arbitration with Ryan O'Reilly by signing the versatile forward to a two-year deal. O'Reilly led the team with a career-high 28 goals last season and won the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy, which is awarded to a player who best exemplifies gentlemanly conduct.

  • Ryan O'Reilly, Avs likely headed to arbitration after talks falter

    Negotiations toward a long-term contract between the Avalanche and left wing Ryan O'Reilly proved fruitless, so the parties are headed to arbitration July 23, an NHL source said Thursday. While the Avs and O'Reilly still could avoid arbitration by agreeing to a deal before that, such a prospect appears unlikely. What it means is this:...

  • Avs free agency: Colorado signs Jarome Iginla, loses Paul Stastny

    DENVER — Jarome Iginla felt a little more youthful on his 37th birthday even as he became the old man of the Colorado Avalanche. He's energized by the challenge of not only trying to keep up with the likes of speedy forward Nathan MacKinnon, who is half Iginla's age, but also of helping this rising squad take another step in its growth. "I...

  • Avs get deeper at center, take Conner Bleackley in first round of NHL Draft

    Center probably is the deepest position on the Avalanche roster, but that did not stop the team from taking another one with its first pick in Friday night's first round of the NHL draft in Philadelphia. The Avs chose the captain of the Red Deer Rebels of the Western Hockey League: 6-foot-1, 196-pound Conner Bleackley. Bleackley, 18, scored...

  • Avs get Daniel Briere from Montreal for Parenteau, draft pick

  • Blog: Incoming Tigers goalie drafted by Red Wings

    Incoming Colorado College freshman Chase Perry had other things on his mind Saturday before he became the latest member of the Detroit Red Wings organization.

  • St. Louis Blues want Paul Stastky, Sakic and agent slated to meet Friday

    The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the Blues have reached out to Paul Stastny. To me, this is the biggest “threat” to the Avs in his possible departure. Stastny essentially grew up in St. Louis, still likes St. Louis, and the Blues are an excellent team that needs a good center. The fit seems perfect. I can report with good...

  • MacKinnon, Roy win NHL Awards; Crosby named MVP

      Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby won his second Hart Trophy as the NHL's most valuable player Tuesday night at the league's postseason awards ceremony in Las Vegas.

  • Avalanche off-season information barrage

    Think we might see something happen against Matt Cooke Oct. 9? If not that night, I’d bet something comes his way Oct. 11. The Avs will play Cooke and the Wild in their first two regular-season games, the NHL announced today. Read more from Denver Post. The Hockey Hall of Fame selection committee meets Monday to determine its pool for the...

  • Klee: Colorado Avalanche's future in able hands of Roy, Sakic

    DENVER — The Avs of 2013-14 were talented enough to win a playoff series or two. But they weren't ready. They weren't mature enough to fend off the gritty Wild, much less the Kings or Blackhawks and their years and years of playoff moxie. Patrick Roy tried to tell us as much, but we didn't listen. The giddiness of the moment overwhelmed...

  • Avs in running for awards after surprising season

    DENVER — The Colorado Avalanche could be wearing out the red carpet at the NHL awards show next week with all the players they have up for honors.

  • Avalanche sign Jamie McGinn to 2-year deal

    DENVER (AP) — The Colorado Avalanche signed left winger Jamie McGinn to a two-year deal Thursday.

Avalanche executive Joe Sakic said McGinn "played an important role for...

  • LA Kings win the Cup on Martinez's double-OT goal

Colorado was defeated in overtime in Game 7, but...

  • Avs' turnaround season ends with 1st-round loss

    DENVER — Ryan O'Reilly stared at the floor in front of his locker for quite some time after a Game 7 overtime loss to Minnesota. His skates were still laced. His uniform was still on. "We could've done a lot better," the Colorado Avalanche forward finally said. For now, it's just too soon for the Avs to think about all they've...

  • Klee: Avalanche season about discovery, not Game 7 defeat

    DENVER — This one will hurt, at least for a few weeks, at least until the big picture sharpens into focus. The Avs weren’t supposed to lose like this. Not these Avs. This is how they win, on a goal that steals the heart of their fans and punches the gut of their opponent. Instead, it was Minnesota winning, 5-4, late Wednesday in Game 7 of...

  • Wild beat Avs in OT in Game 7 to advance

    DENVER — Nino Niederreiter scored his second goal of the game 5:02 into overtime and Ilya Bryzgalov made a big save filling in for an injured Darcy Kuemper, leading the Minnesota Wild to a 5-4 win over the Colorado Avalanche in Game 7 on Wednesday night.

  • Ramsey: Avs should make every effort to retain Stastny

    DENVER - Pay the man. Keeping unrestricted free agent Paul Stastny in a Colorado Avalanche uniform will be massively expensive. The cost could approach $50 million over seven or eight seasons. No. 26 is worth it. Stastny again proved his worth with a laser-like third period goal that lifted the Avs to a (temporary) lead over the Minnesota...
