Avalanche Acquires Fleischmann
The Colorado Avalanche Hockey Club announced today that the team has acquired forward Tomas Fleischmann from the Washington Capitals in exchange for defenseman Scott Hannan.

Fleischmann, 26, has tallied 10 points (4g/6a) with a +3 plus/minus rating in 23 games for the Capitals this season.  In 2009-10, the Koprivnice, Czech Republic native set career highs in goals (23), assists (28) and points (51) in 69 games for Washington.

“First and foremost, I would like to thank Scott Hannan for his services to our organization and wish him the best,” said Avalanche General Manager/Executive Vice President Greg Sherman.  “In Tomas we are acquiring a top-six forward who is only 26 years old.  His addition will bolster our lineup immediately.”

The 6-foot-1, 192-pound center has collected 138 points (60g/78a) in 283 career games in the NHL, while also appearing in 22 playoff games.  Originally selected by Detroit in the second round (63rd overall) of the 2002 Entry Draft, Fleischmann was acquired by Washington on Feb. 27, 2004.

Fleischmann has represented his country in numerous international competitions, including the 2010 Olympic Winter Games, where he had three points (1g/2a) in five games.

Hannan, 31, has spent the last three-plus seasons with the Avalanche, tallying 53 points (5g/48a) in 267 games for Colorado.
