DENVER - The Colorado Avalanche have taken another step back in time.

The Avs re-acquired defenceman Adam Foote on Tuesday from the Columbus Blue Jackets for a conditional first-round draft pick and a fourth-round selection.

Foote spent 13 years with Quebec/Colorado and won Stanley Cups with the Avalanche in 1996 and 2001.

Colorado brought Foote back one day after announcing it had re-signed free-agent forward Peter Forsberg, who was also part of the two Stanley Cup teams in Denver.

Foote left the Avalanche for Columbus as a free agent after the NHL lockout. In 986 career NHL games with the Blue Jackets, Avalanche and Nordiques, the 36-year-old has 283 points (65-218).

He was also part of Canada's gold-medal win at the 2002 Olympics in Salt Lake City.
