DENVER – The Colorado Avalanche Hockey Club announced today that the team has signed forward Jamie McGinn to a two-year contract through the 2015-16 season.
McGinn, 25, recorded 19 goals and 19 assists for 38 points in 79 games for the Avalanche this past season. The Fergus, Ontario native set career highs in points, assists, game-winning goals (3) and games played, while his 19 goals fell one short of his personal best (20 with Colorado/San Jose in 2011-12). He ranked fifth on the team in hits (140).
McGinn went on to finish fourth on the Avalanche in playoff scoring with five points (2g/3a) in seven postseason contests.
“Jamie is coming off a very good season and played an important role for our team,” said Avalanche Executive Vice President of Hockey Operations Joe Sakic. “We’re excited to have him under contract for another two years.”

Training Camp is imminent. Tuesday morning was the last Captain’s Practice I’ll attend this year. Other duties call, in LA. How fitting for a rival city to interfere with my fun.
The guys started skating early on Tuesday, I understand some were due at a function around lunch time. Practice was well under way when I turned up at 9:30. I hesitated at the door because a couple of people were standing there looking through the glass. Well, in my head I hesitated. I looked the door over, saw there was no sign warning me away, and I went in. There may have been no hesitation in my stride.
