The Colorado Avalanche has signed forward David Jones to a four-year, $16 million contract through the 2015-16 season.
Jones collected 20 goals and 17 assists for 37 points in 72 games with the Avs this season, sharing the team lead with five game-winning goals.
"David has been one of our top offensive players over the past two seasons," said Avs GM Greg Sherman. "He is a product of our organization who has developed into a proven goal scorer. We are pleased to have him under contract as he enters the prime of his career."
Jones, 27, was selected by Colorado in the ninth round (288th overall) of the 2003 Entry Draft. He became the lowest Avalanche/Nordiques draft choice to ever make it to the NHL when he made his debut in 2007-08.
The native of Guelph, Ontario, has appeared in 239 career games, tallying 67 goals and 50 assists for 117 points.
