The Colorado Avalanche have signed defenceman Nick Holden to a three-year contract extension through the 2017-18 season.
“Nick was a big part of our defense last season,” said Avalanche Executive Vice President of Hockey Operations Joe Sakic. “He provided offence from our blue line and played with a lot of confidence as the season moved on. We are pleased that he will continue to be a part of our team.”
Holden, 27, scored 10 goals while appearing in 54 games during his first full NHL season in 2013-14. The St. Albert, Alta. native ranked fourth among Colorado defenders in points (25) and assists (15).
