Avalanche Acquires Fahey
The Colorado Avalanche Hockey Club announced today that it has acquired defenseman Brian Fahey from the New York Rangers in exchange for defenseman Nigel Williams.

Fahey, 28, recorded 24 points (4g/20a) in 66 games with the Hartford Wolf Pack (AHL) in 2008-09. The 6-foot-1, 215-pound blueliner spent the 2007-08 campaign with the AHL’s Chicago Wolves, where he helped lead the club to the Calder Cup title by recording 10 points (2g/8a) in 24 postseason contests.

A native of Glenview, Illinois, Fahey was originally Colorado’s seventh selection (119th overall) in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft. Fahey played collegiately at the University of Wisconsin, where he was named to the WCHA All-Rookie Team in 1999-2000.

Williams, Colorado’s second selection (second round, 51st overall) in the 2006 Entry Draft, totaled 21 points (7g/14a) in 70 games for the Lake Erie Monsters during the 2008-09 campaign.
