The Colorado Avalanche signed former Minnesota Wild forward Chuck Kobasew to a two year deal worth $1.25 million per season.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: A former two-time twenty-plus goal-scorer, Kobasew has been unable to regain that form since joining the Wild early in the 2009-10 season, in part due to injuries. He should get a chance to try to play back into a scoring role with the rebuilding Avs.
