Avs Extend Hejduk

DENVER – The Colorado Avalanche Hockey Club announced today that the team has signed forward Milan Hejduk to a one-year contract extension through the 2010-11 season.

Hejduk, who is entering his 11th season in the NHL, has spent his entire career with the Colorado Avalanche.  Originally selected by the Quebec Nordiques in the fourth round (87th overall) of the 1994 Entry Draft, Hejduk has recorded 312 goals and 345 assists for 657 points in 783 career games.  He ranks fourth in franchise history in both games played and goals, and sits fifth in points.  Hejduk is the franchise’s all-time leader in regular season overtime goals with nine and his 52 career game-winning tallies rank second in franchise history behind only Joe Sakic (86).

“Milan has been an integral part of this organization over the past 10 seasons,” said Avalanche General Manager Greg Sherman.  “We are pleased to have him under contract and are counting on his leadership both on and off the ice to help this team move forward into the future.”
