Avalanche sign Giguere to contract extension

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.

Quote of the Day

I was going nuts and I saw [Subban], he was going crazy, and the ref had no idea where to go. [Subban] was skating to me, and I was skating to him and the ref was right in between us and I don't know, I kind of hit him pretty hard, I thought, but those were some emotions and I'm pretty sure he understands that.
