Giguere Signs Extension With Colorado

DENVER – The Colorado Avalanche Hockey Club announced today that the team has signed goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere to a one-year contract extension through the 2013-14 season.

Giguere appeared in 32 games during his first season with the Avalanche in 2011-12, posting a 15-11-3 record with a 2.27 goals-against average and .919 save percentage.  He finished ninth in the league in goals-against average, the lowest GAA by a Colorado netminder since 2003-04 (David Aebischer 2.09).  Giguere’s .919 save percentage was also the best by an Avalanche goalie since 2003-04 (Aebischer .924).

“J.S. provided leadership, stability and a veteran presence to our team last season,” said Avalanche General Manager/Executive Vice President Greg Sherman.  “He helped solidify our goaltending position and we are pleased to have J.S. under contract for the next two seasons.”
