Avalanche agree on 2-year deals for both F Daniel Winnik and D Kyle Quincey

DENVER - The Colorado Avalanche agreed to terms on two-year deals Friday for both forward Daniel Winnik and defenceman Kyle Quincey.

Winnik was acquired in a trade with Phoenix on Monday. The 25-year-old had four goals and 15 assists for the Coyotes last season.

Quincey, 24, was one of the Avalanche's most dependable defencemen last season, logging more than 23 minutes of ice time a game. He finished with six goals and 23 assists.

Colorado has made it a priority this summer to lock up some of its up-and-coming players. With Winnik and Quincey taken care of, the focus may shift to youngsters such as Chris Stewart, Brandon Yip and Peter Mueller.

The Avalanche made it to the playoffs in 2009-10 by relying heavily on their youth.
