The Colorado Avalanche have stayed out of the unrestricted free agent frenzy for the most part and today decided to take care of a couple of their own players instead by re-signing defenseman Kyle Quincey and recently acquired from Phoenix forward Daniel Winnik. Adrian Dater of the Denver Post gives us the details.
Quincey gets two-year, $6.25 million deal. 3.0 3.25. Winnik two years at 900k and 1 million.
For Quincey that is a substantial raise. The last two seasons, Quincey made $525,000 and is now going to make a cap hit of $3.125 million for the next two seasons. Talk about a vote of confidence from your organization. Last year, Quincey was good for six goals, 23 assists and a plus-minus rating of +9 in 79 games.
Winnik gets a raise from $600,000 to a cap hit of $950,000 over two seasons. As a third or fourth line player and penalty killer for the Coyotes last year, Winnik was good for four goals, 15 assists and a plus-minus of +1 in 74 games. The Avalanche will be counting on Winnik to fill those same roles for them the next two years and help keep their forward depth sustainable.
