The Colorado Avalanche reunion tour has added another member.
On Tuesday, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post passed along word that Adam Foote — a two-time Cup winner in Colorado with new head coach Patrick Roy and president Joe Sakic — would be joining Roy’s coaching staff on a part-time basis.
Foote will work with the club’s defensemen, a fitting role given he was one of the best blueliners to ever play for the organization.
In 2009, he inherited Colorado’s captaincy from Sakic, becoming just the eighth captain in Avs/Nordiques franchise history and just the second since the move to Denver.
In Colorado, Foote will have a number of young defensemen to work with.
Duncan Siemens, the 11th overall pick at the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, just finished up a four-year career with WHL Saskatoon, while 21-year-old Tyson Barrie and 22-year-old Stefan Elliott seem primed to play with the Avs on a full-time basis.
