Avalanche Signs Hunwick
The Colorado Avalanche Hockey Club announced today that the team has signed defenseman Matt Hunwick to a two-year contract through the 2013-14 season.

Hunwick, 27, appeared in 33 games for the Avalanche last season, collecting six points (3g/3a).  He dressed in each of the final 21 contests to end the year, tallying five points (3g/2a) with a +1 rating during that stretch.

“Matt provides depth to our defense,” said Avalanche General Manager/Executive Vice President Greg Sherman.  “He played an important role for our team late last season and we are excited to have him under contract.”

A native of Warren, Mich., Hunwick has appeared in 248 career NHL games, recording 61 points (16g/45a).  Selected by Boston in the seventh round (224th overall) of the 2004 Entry Draft, Hunwick was acquired by Colorado on Nov. 29, 2010.
