Avalanche Re-Sign Forward Porter & Defenseman Macias

The Colorado Avalanche announced on Thursday that they have signed right wing Kevin Porter and defenseman Ray Macias to one-year contract extensions. Financial terms of both deals were not disclosed. Both players were eligible for restricted free agency on July 1. The Avalanche acquired Porter at the March 3 trade deadline from the Phoenix Coyotes along with forward Peter Mueller in exchange for forward Wojtek Wolski. In 20 games last season with the Coyotes and Avalanche, he had two goals and one assist for three points. Porter also appeared in 56 games with San Antonio and Lake Erie of the AHL, scoring 16 goals and 25 assists for 41 points. Macias played in 52 games with Lake Erie last season, scoring seven goals and 10 assists for 17 points. He did not appear in any NHL games during the 2009-10 season. These aren't bad depth signings for the Avalanche. Porter has plenty of offensive upside and is a very versatile player, as he can play all three forward positions. The only knock against him is that he is not very consistent in his scoring. Macias has good offensive instincts and is a decent puck-moving defenseman, so he should be a decent fit on the Avalanche blueline if he makes the team next season.
