Hishon re-ups with Colorado

The Colorado Avalanche Hockey Club announced Monday that the team has signed forward Joey Hishon to a one-year contract for the upcoming 2015-16 season.


Hishon, who was a restricted free agent, appeared in 13 games for the Avalanche this past season, tallying two points (1g/1a). After making his regular season NHL debut on March 4 vs. Pittsburgh, Hishon scored his first NHL goal, the game-winner, on April 7 vs. Nashville. The Stratford, Ontario, native spent most of the year with the Lake Erie Monsters, recording 36 points (16g/20a) in 53 games. He finished third on the team in goals and fourth in points.
Colorado’s first-round pick (17th overall) in the 2010 Entry Draft, Hishon joined the Avalanche for the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs, tallying one point (0g/1a) in three postseason contests. Prior to turning pro, Hishon was named to the 2010-11 Ontario Hockey League’s First All-Star Team after collecting 87 points (37g/50a) in 50 games for the Owen Sound Attack.
