Avalanche sign defenseman Mark Barberio to 2-year deal

DENVER (AP) — The Colorado Avalanche are bringing back defenseman Mark Barberio on a two-year deal.

Barberio is coming off a season in which he had three goals and 10 assists. He was limited to 46 games due to a lower-body injury, but returned at the end of the regular season and played in all six games during the first-round playoff series against the Nashville Predators.

The 28-year-old Barberio was claimed by Colorado off waivers from Montreal on Feb. 2, 2017. A sixth-round pick by Tampa Bay in 2008, he's played in 239 career games with the Lightning, Canadiens and Avalanche.

Last week, Colorado signed defenseman Mark Alt to a two-year deal. Alt was claimed by the Avs off waivers from Philadelphia on Feb. 26.
