Avalanche signs Kyle Cumiskey to one-year deal
The Colorado Avalanche Hockey Club announced today that the team has signed defenseman Kyle Cumiskey to a one-year contract through the 2011-12 season.

“We are pleased to have Kyle under contract and look forward to seeing him at training camp,” said Avalanche General Manager/Executive Vice President Greg Sherman.

Cumiskey, 24, tallied eight points (1g/7a), but was limited to 18 games with Colorado in 2010-11, due to injuries.

Colorado’s ninth selection (seventh round, 222nd overall) in the 2005 Entry Draft, Cumiskey has skated in 132 career NHL games, tallying 35 points (9g/26a).  The Abbotsford, B.C., native led all Colorado defensemen with seven goals and finished with 20 points in 61 games in 2009-10.  He also dressed in all six playoff games for the Avs that spring, tallying a goal and one assist while leading the club in ice time at 22:37 per game.

Quote of the Day

Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.
