The Avalanche have signed Ryan O'Byrne to a 2-year,
$6million $3.6 million contract (sorry, keyboard is sticking). O'Byrne joined the Avs last season on a trade with Montreal on November 11, 2010. In 64 games with Colorado, the defenseman recorded 10 points (0g, 10a) and 71 penalty minutes. He ended the season second in ice time (20:24) and blocked shots (126).
"Ryan brings size to our defense," said Avalanche General Manager/Executive Vice President Greg Sherman. "We are pleased to have him under contract for the next two years and look forward to him continuing his career with our organization."
