Avs ink D Guenin to two-year extension
Denver, CO (SportsNetwork.com) - The Colorado Avalanche announced Tuesday that the club has signed defenseman Nate Guenin to a two-year contract extension that will run through the 2015-16 season.
The 31-year-old journeyman has emerged as a regular on the Avalanche blueline this season, having appeared in 38 of Colorado's 42 games and recording a team-best 86 blocked shots along with four assists.
