The Colorado Avalanche announced on Sunday that they've signed 15-year NHL veteran Jack Johnson to a one-year contract worth $750,000. The Indianapolis, Indiana native was attending Colorado's training camp on a professional tryout contract.

"Jack is a veteran defenseman that we brought into camp to help shore up our depth on the back end," said Avalanche Executive Vice President / General Manager Joe Sakic. "He provides a steady presence and brings a lot of NHL experience to our team. We like what he has added to our blue line over the past few weeks and we're pleased to have him on the club as we head into the start of the season."

This is a good deal for Jack. Hopefully he bounces back and becomes the shut down D the Avalanche need.
