Mueller, Avs agree to 2-year deal

Friday, 09.10.2010 / 4:37 PM / NHL Free Agency 2010

NHL.com

The Colorado Avalanche and restricted free-agent forward Peter Mueller have agreed on a two-year contract. TSN says the deal will pay Mueller $1.5 million this season and $2.5 million in 2011-12.

Mueller struggled with the Phoenix Coyotes last season, but was dealt to Colorado at the trade deadline for Wojtek Wolski and became a major part of the Avalanche's playoff push, scoring 20 points in 15 games. His season ended prematurely due to a concussion sustained on April 4 against San Jose.

The Coyotes made Mueller the eighth pick of the 2006 Entry Draft. He scored 22 goals as a rookie in 2007-08 but has not gotten back to that total -- dipping to 13 goals in 2008-09 and just 4 goals and 17 points in 54 games last season prior to his trade to Colorado.
