TheFourthPeriod.com

The Colorado Avalanche has signed defenseman Erik Johnson to a four-year, $15 million contract extension.

Johnson, 24, led all Colorado defensemen in scoring this past season with 26 points (4 goals, 22 assists) in 73 games. He also led all team blueliners in assists and shots-on-goal (155) while averaging 20:50 of ice time per game.

"Since Erik's arrival in Colorado, he has provided stability, size and an offensive presence to our blueline," said Avalanche GM Greg Sherman. "At only 24 years of age, we believe that Erik will continue to grow his game and we are thrilled to have him under contract."

The first overall pick in the 2006 Entry Draft, Johnson was acquired by Colorado from St. Louis on Feb. 18, 2011.

The native of Bloomington, Minn., has accumulated 27 goals and 100 assists for 127 points in 298 career NHL games.
