Avalanche Signs Per Ledin
The Colorado Avalanche Hockey Club announced today that it has signed forward Per Ledin to a one-year contract.

Ledin, 29, spent this past season with HV 71 Jonkoping of the Swedish Elite League, where he tallied 33 points (16g/17a) and 137 penalty minutes in 52 games.  The left winger finished third on the team in penalty minutes, fifth in goals and sixth in points.  He also appeared in all 17 playoff games for Jonkoping, which captured the league title.

“Per Ledin will add a different dimension to our team,” said Avalanche Assistant to the General Manager Michel Goulet.  “We believe his gritty style of play will benefit our club in the upcoming 2008-09 season.”

The Lulea, Sweden, native represented his country at the 2008 IIHF World Championship in Halifax/Quebec City, recording five points (0g/5a) in seven games.  The 6-0, 194-pound winger has spent most of his professional career in Sweden but did play 27 games for the Baton Rouge  Kingfish of the East Coast Hockey League in 2000-01.
