After putting together the best season of his career, Colorado Avalanche forward Jamie McGinn was rewarded with a two-year contract through the 2015-16 season. The announcement comes on the heels of Colorado's pre-draft press conference in which head coach Patrick Roy said the team was attempting to keep its "core group" from last season.

"Jamie is coming off a very good season and played an important role for our team," said Avalanche Executive Vice President Joe Sakic in a statement. "We're excited to have him under contract for another two years."

McGinn was fourth on the team in playoff scoring, with two goals and three assists in seven games played. In 143 games for the Avalanche in his career, he has totaled thirty-five goals and thirty-eight assists.
