Colorado tornado Signed Free agent transfer today. No, that’s not it.
The Avalanche signed Anton Bleed to a one-year, one-year, two-way contract worth $750,00 at the NHL level and $350,000 at the AHL level. This looks like a depth signing and could see him spend time with the Colorado Eagles next season. But he played 32 games for the Boston Bruins in 2021-22, so that’s something. He spent seven seasons in Boston organization.
My colleague at Boston Hockey Now, Joe “Haggs” Haggerty, has more on what kind of player Blind was/is. over here.
