DLS Favorite Tyler Arnason Re-Signs With Avs

He's no superstar, and he avoids physical play like Ed Belfour avoids sobriety, but during the great (but ultimately futile) late-season run for the playoffs, Tyler Arnason played his heart out for the Avalanche.

In thanks, the Avs signed him to a two-year, $3.35 million contract. $1.6 million this coming season, $1.75 million the next. The Avs secure a solid third-line center and Arnason secures employment for a couple more years. Not a bad trade-off.

Hopefully the same drive that propelled his play at the end of last season will continue to power Arnason's efforts as the Avalanche avenge their first elimination from post-season eligibility in more than a decade. I'm glad to see him return.

He was pretty worthless when he was a Senator, that's true.
