The deal is for the remainder of the 2022-23 season.

The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, though CapFriendly.com reported it as being $750,000.

Galchenyuk, 28, attended Avalanche training camp and signed a PTO with the Colorado Eagles on Nov. 9, recording seven points and a plus-four rating in seven games with the AHL club.
