DENVER (AP) - The Colorado Avalanche have signed goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere (zhee-GEHR') to a one-year contract extension.

The deal announced by the Avalanche on Monday will keep Giguere with the team through the 2013-14 season.

The 35-year-old Montreal native appeared in 32 games last season, his first with the Avalanche. He had the lowest goals-against average, 2.27, of any Colorado goaltender since David Aebischer in the 2003-4 season.

Playing for my favorite team growing up, I've probably scored that goal a million times in my driveway. It feels good to actually do it in real life.

— Dale Weise, who grew up a Canadiens fan, on scoring the overtime winner in Montreal's 5-4 victory against Tampa Bay in Game 1
