Denver, CO (Sports Network) - The Colorado Avalanche signed restricted free- agent forward Chris Stewart to a two-year deal on Thursday. A report placed the value of the deal at $6 million.

The 22-year-old led the Avs with 28 goals and ranked second in points with 64 over 77 regular-season games in 2009-10.

"We are pleased to have Chris Stewart under contract," said Colorado general manager and executive vice president Greg Sherman. "Chris was one of our top offensive players last season and we look forward to seeing him build on what he started."

The 2006 first-round draft pick of the Avalanche posted 11 goals and 19 points in 53 games two seasons ago as a rookie.
