The Colorado Avalanche Hockey Club announced today that the team has agreed to terms with goaltender Peter Budaj and forward Cody McCormick. Budaj agreed to a three-year contract with the Avs. The 23-year old appeared in 34 games in goal last season, one shy of the franchise rookie record set by Mario Gosselin in 1984-85. Budaj tied for sixth among all NHL rookies with 14 wins, posting a 14-10-6 record. “Peter Budaj showed tremendous ability last season,” said Avalanche Executive Vice President and General Manager Francois Giguere. “Our hockey staff is convinced that he will be a strong asset for our team for years to come. Along with Jose Theodore, we believe they will be one of the top goaltending tandems in the NHL heading into the 2006-07 season.”
