Malone re-signs with Avs

Former UND center Brad Malone has re-signed with the Colorado Avalanche.

Malone, who was a restricted free agent, inked a one-year, two-way deal worth $735,000 if he plays in the NHL or $65,000 if he plays in the AHL.

Malone has split time between the Colorado Avalanche and the Lake Erie Monsters in his first two seasons of pro hockey. He played 9 NHL games as a rookie and 13 as a second-year player. He has 1 goal and 4 points.

Malone will be a restricted free agent again next summer.

  1. With Kobasew and Hedjuk out and O’Reilly moving to a (likely first line) winger position on Duchene’s line, the door is open for him to fill a fourth line role if he has a good camp at the start of the season. Remember his first season he was one of the last to get sent down out of training camp.

    • Naw, not really. John Mitchell is the locked 4th line center with Bordeleau and McCleod on the wings. Malone might be an injury call-up but there’s a big logjam at center in Colorado. If he stays with the Avs, he’ll probably get his shot next year when Mitchell is a UFA.

  2. Wish him nothing but the best. Loved his game and his physical play. I think he sticks with the big club this time around.

  3. I see Toews had the Stanley Cup up in Winnipeg for his day with it. Hmmm..
    2 Cups and no stop in Grand Forks. Any ideas as to why he passed again? I would think if relations are good with Coaching staff a couple hours at the Ralph could be squeezed in, I mean it’s not like Winnipeg is way off the path from here.
    Just curious.

  4. Brad,

    Off Topic. I thought I read somewhere that UND was going to be playing in British Columbia? Am I dreaming? Or might this be a reality?
