Kevin Porter, Ryan Wilson Avoid Arbitration, Sign One-Year Deals With Avalanche

Kevin Porter and Ryan Wilson won't be going to arbitration with the Colorado Avalanche at the end of July after all. On Saturday, the team announced that they agreed to terms with both players on one-year deals.

Porter arrived in Colorado in March 2010 when the Avalanche trade Wojtek Wolski to Phoenix for him and Peter Mueller. He picked up two goals and an assist in 16 games that season. In the 2010-11 season, the forward tallied 14 goals and 11 assists, averaging nearly 14 minutes on the ice.

Defenseman Ryan Wilson enjoyed a solid sophomore season in 2010-11 for the Avalanche. Picking up 16 points, Wilson also picked up 68 penalty minutes and averaged just under 20 minutes each game.

Both will face stiff competition at their respective positions with a bunch of excellent talent making its way up the chain.

On Friday, the Avalanche announced the signings of goalie Cedrick Desjardins and forward Evan Brophey among seven total deals.
