Milan Hejduk signs one-year contract extension with Avalanche

DENVER - The Colorado Avalanche signed veteran forward Milan Hejduk on Thursday to a one-year contract extension through the 2010-11 season.

Hejduk has spent his entire 11-year NHL career with the Avalanche. The team didn't release terms of the contract.

Hejduk, 33, led Colorado with 27 goals last season, marking the second straight year and fifth time in his career that he has done so. He also shared the club's scoring lead with 59 points and was selected to his third NHL all-star game.

The Czech Republic native has scored 298 goals since the start of the 1999-2000 season, the fourth-highest total in the NHL behind Jarome Iginla (347), Marian Hossa (324) and Jaromir Jagr (301).
