via TSN,

Harvard standout forward Alex Kerfoot will be joining the Colorado Avalanche, according to TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger.

The 23-year-old will sign a two-year entry-level contract with the club after becoming a free agent last week when his rights with the New Jersey Devils expired.

TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger tweeted on Tuesday that Kerfoot drew interest from as many as 10 NHL teams, including the Canucks, Rangers, Islanders, Sharks and Avalanche.

Kerfoot - a native of West Vancouver - scored 16 goals and posted 45 points in 36 games with Harvard last season. He scored eight goals in both his freshman and sophomore seasons and posted four as a junior in 2015-16. He also tallied a career-high 30 assists in his junior year.
