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

Zanon, 32, split the 2011-12 season between Minnesota and Boston, recording eight points (3g/5a) with a +3 plus/minus rating in 56 combined games between the two teams.  The Burnaby, B.C., native began the year with the Wild, tallying six points (2g/4a) in 39 games.  Acquired by Boston on Feb. 27, Zanon collected two points (1g/1a) in 17 contests for the Bruins.  He went on to dress in all seven playoff games for Boston, picking up one assist.

“Greg is a veteran defenseman who adds experience and depth to our blueline,” said Avalanche General Manager/Executive Vice President Greg Sherman.  “We are pleased to have him under contract and look forward to him joining our organization.”

Selected by Ottawa in the fifth round (156th overall) of the 2000 Entry Draft, Zanon has appeared in 449 career games, totaling 56 points (12g/44a).  He spent parts of four seasons with Nashville (2005-06 to 2008-09), two-plus seasons with Minnesota (2009-10 to 2011-12) and finished the 2011-12 campaign with Boston.  He has also skated in 18 career playoff games (0g/5a).
