The Colorado Avalanche have signed defenceman Mark Barberio to a two-year contract worth $1.45 million per season.

Barberio had three goals and 13 points in 46 games with the Avalanche this past season.

The 28-year-old was claimed off of waivers from Montreal in 2016-17.

“Mark has been a steady part of our blue line since joining the team and has helped solidify our defensive depth,” said Avalanche executive vice-president and general manager Joe Sakic said in a release. “He has played important minutes for us and has been a key penalty killer.

“We are pleased to have Mark under contract for the next two seasons.”
