Adam Foote will spend one more season in the NHL and one more year with the Colorado Avalanche, as Adrian Dater is reporting he has signed a one-year contract with the Avs worth $1 million base salary, plus incentives.
Foote is about as far from the new breed of “offensive defensemen” as you can get, with just 66 goals in over 1,100 NHL games. But he’s also the veteran defensive presence that the Avalanche will need moving next season, as they make the transition from overachieving young team to a team with high expectations next season.
