DENVER -- The Colorado Avalanche signed left winger Jamie McGinn to a two-year, $5.9 million deal Thursday.

The 25-year McGinn had 19 goals and 19 assists in 79 games last season in helping the Avalanche tie a franchise record with 52 wins. He also had three game-winning goals.

Avalanche executive Joe Sakic said McGinn "played an important role for our team" as they made the playoffs for the first time since 2009-10.

McGinn was acquired by Colorado in a trade with San Jose on Feb. 27, 2012.
