Svatos signs with Avalanche

DENVER (AP) Colorado Avalanche forward Marek Svatos has signed a one-year deal with the team, the Avalanche said Thursday.

Svatos scored 15 goals and 30 points in 66 games for the Avalanche last season, a year after tying Joe Sakic for the team lead with 32 goals and finishing third among NHL rookies behind Alex Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby.

His nine game-winning goals that season tied the league record set by Steve Larmer in 1982-83.

``We are looking for Marek to regain his rookie season scoring touch and heroics,'' general manager Francois Giguere said. ``He has tremendous skills and is part of a group of young players ready to make a significant impact on the success of our team.''
