Hejduk wants to play (for Avs) beyond current contract...

Hejduk wants to play beyond 2009-10 season The Denver Post Posted: 03/26/2009 12:30:00 AM MDT Updated: 03/26/2009 12:46:27 AM MDT

 

 

Last summer, Milan Hejduk hinted he might retire when his contract with the Avalanche expires, after the 2009-10 season. But Hejduk said Wednesday he now is sure he wants to play beyond next season — and wants to do so with the Avs.

"Obviously, things are not going well here this year. But hopefully it's going to be one bad year and then we'll be good next year," Hejduk said. "But I want to play more than one more year, for sure."

Hejduk, 33, is scheduled to earn $4 million next season and can be an unrestricted free agent in 2010. Despite having his first minus season of his career (minus-14 entering Wednesday's game with Anaheim), Hejduk has played well offensively (26 goals) and, perhaps more important in his mind, has overcome some of the nagging knee ailments that slowed him down at times last season.
