DENVER – The Colorado Avalanche Hockey Club announced today that the team has signed forward Brandon Yip to a two-year contract through the 2011-12 season. Yip was a restricted free-agent.
Yip, 25, was recalled by the Avalanche on Dec. 18 of last year and went on to tally 11 goals and 19 points (11g/8a) in 32 games during his rookie campaign. He finished first among all NHL rookies in goals-per-game at 0.34. The 6-foot-1, 180-pound right wing also appeared in all six playoff games for Colorado, recording two goals and two assists to rank second on the team in postseason scoring with four points.
