The Colorado Avalanche announced Thursday that the team has signed defenceman Tyson Barrie to a two-year contract through the 2015-16 season.

Barrie, 23, led all Colorado defencemen with 13 goals this past season, the most by an Avs blueliner since 2006-07 when John-Michael Liles posted 14 goals.

Barrie finished second among Avalanche defencemen in both points (38) and assists (25) while appearing in 64 games last season.
