Svatos Re-Signed To One-Year Deal
The Colorado Avalanche Hockey Club announced Thursday the re-signing of forward Marek Svatos to a one-year deal.

“We are looking for Marek to regain his rookie season scoring touch and heroics,” said Avalanche Executive Vice President and General Manager Francois Giguere. “He has tremendous skills and is part of a group of young players ready to make a significant impact on the success of our team.”

Svatos, 25, appeared in a career-high 66 games last season, his third with the Avalanche, recording 15 goals and 30 points. He tallied eight power play goals, fifth-highest on the team and led the club in goals during the month of November with six.

During his rookie season of 2005-06, Svatos tied Joe Sakic for the team-lead with 32 goals, third among NHL rookies behind Alex Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby. He became just the fourth rookie in franchise history to tally 30 or more goals in a single season joining Peter, Anton and Marian Stastny. Marek's nine game-winning goals that season tied the NHL rookie record set by Steve Larmer in 1982-83.

Colorado's 10th selection (227th overall) in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft, Svatos has recorded 49 goals and 82 points in 131 career games with the Avalanche.  Twelve of his 49 goals (or 24%) have been game winners.
