DENVER – The Colorado Avalanche Hockey Club announced today that the team has acquired forward Daniel Winnik from the Phoenix Coyotes in exchange for a fourth-round selection in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.

Winnik, 25, appeared in 74 games for the Coyotes in 2009-10, tallying 19 points (4g/15a) with a +1 plus/minus rating.  He led all Coyotes forwards with 54 blocked shots and was second on the club in takeaways with 30.  The 6-foot-2, 210-pound left wing was also among the team leaders in short-handed time on ice, averaging 3:04 per game (third most on the squad).  Winnik went on to skate in all seven playoff games for Phoenix.

"Daniel is a young player with size, speed and has the ability to kill penalties." said Avalanche General Manager/Executive Vice President Greg Sherman.  "He has three years of NHL experience and will fill an important role with our team next season."
