Jayson Megna is returning to the Avalanche as they announced that they have signed the winger to a one-year deal. Financial terms were not disclosed by the team but Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports (Twitter link) that the contract pays $700K in the NHL and $350K in the AHL.
The 30-year-old played in eight games with Colorado last season and was held off the scoresheet while averaging just under seven minutes per night. He spent most of the year with the AHL Eagles where he picked up 18 goals and 16 assists in just 43 games, the best point per game mark of his career.
Over his career, Megna has 121 NHL games under his belt between the Penguins, Rangers, Canucks, and Avalanche. He’s likely to pass through waivers and suit up with the Eagles again in 2020-21 but could certainly be recalled and play on the fourth line should injuries arise up front.
