DENVER (Ticker) - The Colorado Avalanche canceled their appointment with an arbitrator on Friday, announcing they re-signed centre Brett McLean to a one-year contract late Thursday night.

Financial terms were not disclosed, but McLean made $450,000 last season, his first with Colorado. The 27-year-old set career highs with 31 assists and 40 points in 82 games, becoming one of six members of the Avalanche to appear in each of the team's regular-season contests.

"Brett had a strong season and produced some quality minutes for the club," Colorado general manager Francois Giguere said. "We're pleased we were able to sign him and avoid arbitration."

Selected in the ninth round of the 1997 draft by Dallas, McLean made his NHL debut with Chicago in 2002-03, appearing in two games. He has collected 20 goals and 71 points in 160 career contests with the Blackhawks and Avalanche.
