As was expected, it was a quiet day for the Colorado Avalanche. Earlier in the day, the Colorado Avalanche signed goaltender Jonathan Bernier and acquired forward Colin Wilson from Nashville.
(And no Matt Duchene trade as of now).
Later in the day however, the Avalanche bolstered their minor league team, the San Antonio Rampage, with a trio of signings. The Avalanche signed forward Andrew Agozzino and defenseman David Warsofsky to two year contracts and goaltender Joe Cannata to a one year deal.
Agozzino, 26, was with the Avalanche organization from 2012-16, collecting 79 goals and 194 points in 266 games with the Avs‘ AHL affiliates (then-Lake Erie Monsters and San Antonio Rampage). In the 2016-17 campaign, Agozzino played with the Chicago Wolves, scoring 18 goals and 54 points in 71 games. This will mark the second stint with the Avs for the 5’10 187 pound winger
Warsofsky, 27, spent the majority of the 2016-17 campaign with Pittsburgh Penguin AHL affiliate, Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, where he was the blue lines’ top scoring defenseman with 16 goals and 47 points in 58 games. The 5’9 170 pound d-man also skated in 7 games with the Pittsburgh Penguins where he notched 1 assist.
Cannata, 27, spent most of the season with the Hersey Bears (Washington Capitals AHL affiliate) before being acquired by the Avalanche at the trade deadline. Cannata posted a 11-5-3 record with a 3.22 GAA and a .876 save percentage with the Hershey Bears. With the Rampage, Cannata held a record of 2-3-0, a 3.60 GAA and .872 save percentage. The 6’1 200 pound goaltender is expected to form a goalie tandem with Spencer Martin for San Antonio.
