Avalanche add John Mitchell
The Colorado Avalanche added depth at forward and on defense in the first hour of free agency Sunday.

Colorado agreed to terms with former New York Rangers forward John Mitchell the team announced. TSN's Darren Dreger reported the deal for Mitchell is worth $2.2 million over two years.

Mitchell had five goals and 16 points in 63 games in his lone season with the Rangers after previously spending parts of three campaigns with Toronto.
Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
