The Colorado Avalanche have signed Ryan Smyth to a five-year deal worth $31.25 million.
After playing his entire career with the Edmonton Oilers, Smyth was traded to the New York Islanders at the February trade deadline when the two sides were unable to reach a long-term contract. In return, the Oilers received prospects Ryan O’Marra, Robert Nilsson and the Islanders’ first-round pick in 2007.
Update 11:30pm ET:
Quotable Adrian Dater at the Denver Post: “...Smyth and Hannan might not make the Avs the best team in the league, but they definitely have the league’s two best mullets now.”
