Report: Avalanche Sign Giguere.

RDS reports the Colorado Avalanche have signed goaltender J.S. Giguere, details to follow…

**UPDATE** Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports the deal isn’t done yet but suggested it could be later today, stay tuned.

The deal is now official, a two-year contract, salary amount to follow…

It’s $2.5 million, or $1.25 million per season.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: Giguere will obviously be in the backup/tutor role to recently acquired Semyon Varlamov. Both, when healthy, would make a solid tandem for the Avs. The question is, can they both stay healthy? For the sake of the Avs, let’s hope so. They’ll need quality goaltending to make the playoffs,and these two are capable of providing it.
