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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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?
