Avalanche ink Tatar to 1-year deal reportedly worth $1.5M

The Colorado Avalanche signed Tomas Tatar to a one-year contract Tuesday, the team announced.

The pact is worth $1.5 million, reports The Athletic’s Peter Baugh.

Tatar scored 20 goals for the seventh time in his 12-year career last season for the New Jersey Devils. He added 28 assists and averaged 15:07 of ice time while playing all 82 games for the fourth time.

The veteran forward, who turns 33 on Dec. 1, spent the last two campaigns with the Devils. He played the previous three with the Montreal Canadiens after splitting the 2017-18 season between the Detroit Red Wings and Vegas Golden Knights.

The Golden Knights shipped him to Montreal in the trade that also sent Nick Suzuki to the Habs and Max Pacioretty to Vegas.

Detroit traded Tatar to the Golden Knights for three draft picks in February 2018. The Slovakian winger played his first six seasons with the Wings, and then 62 games in the next campaign before they traded him to Vegas. Detroit drafted him 60th overall in 2009.
