Avalanche sign Iginla to 3-year, $16M deal after losing Stastny in free agency

DENVER - A person with knowledge of the situation says the Colorado Avalanche have signed forward Jarome Iginla to a three-year, $16 million deal.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Tuesday because the deal has yet to be announced.

Iginla scored 30 goals and had 31 assists in 78 games with the Boston Bruins last season. He will be counted on to help fill the scoring void left by Paul Stastny, who signed a four-year, $28 million deal with St. Louis earlier in the day.

Iginla, who turned 37 on Tuesday, is a six-time All Star. He's led the league in goals twice and has 560 in his career with Calgary, Pittsburgh and Boston.

TSN first reported Iginla's signing with Colorado.

Quote of the Day

It was the look in his eyes. Hockey is the most important thing in his life. He wants to be a hockey player, and nothing's going to stop him from being a hockey player.
