Avalanche Offseason 2012: Colorado Re-Signs Steve Downie To Two Year Deal

As NHL free agency approaches, the Colorado Avalanche continue to extend offers to their restricted free agents. The latest beneficiary of a new deal is forward Steve Downie, according to Bob McKenzie of TSN.

Downie, 25, was acquired at the trade deadline from the Tampa Bay Lightning in exchange for defenseman Kyle Quincey. The hard hitting forward had a spectacular first two weeks with Colorado before a shoulder injury limited his effectiveness for the remainder of the season. He underwent offseason surgery and is expected to be fully healthy by the start of camp.
