The Colorado Avalanche announced today that the team has signed forward Andrew Agozzino and defenseman David Warsofsky to two-year contracts, and goaltender Joe Cannata to a one-year deal.

This will be the second stint with the Avalanche for Agozzino. The 26-year-old was with the organization from 2012-16, collecting 194 points (79g, 115a) in 266 games with the club’s American Hockey League affiliates in Lake Erie and San Antonio. He spent the 2016-17 campaign with the Chicago Wolves, finishing with 54 points (18g, 36a) in 71 outings.

Agozzino made his NHL debut with the Avalanche on Nov. 22, 2014, against the Carolina Hurricanes and picked up an assist. He has skated in 10 NHL games with Colorado, registering three assists.

An undrafted free agent, the 5-foot-10, 187-pound left wing was an AHL All-Star in 2013.

Warsofsky, 27, spent the majority of the 2016-17 campaign with the AHL’s Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, where he led all team defensemen with 47 points (16g, 31a) in 58 contests, all career highs. He also tied for second in the AHL in plus/minus (+30) and was voted a Second Team AHL All-Star.

Warsofsky skated in seven games with Pittsburgh last season, notching one assist.

A fourth-round pick (95th overall) of the St. Louis Blues in the 2008 NHL Draft, Warsofsky has skated in 39 career NHL games with Boston, Pittsburgh and New Jersey, tallying six points (2g, 4a). The Marshfield, Mass., native has totaled 148 points (36g, 112a) in 305 AHL contests with Providence and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.

Cannata, 27, spent most of the 2016-17 season with the Hershey Bears before being acquired by the Avalanche on March 1. He was 11-5-3 in 22 games with Hershey, posting a 3.22 goals-against average and a .876 save percentage, and in six contests with the San Antonio Rampage, went 2-3-0 with a 3.60 GAA and a .872 save percentage.

Selected by the Vancouver Canucks in the sixth round (173rd overall) of the 2009 NHL Draft, Cannata has a 54-41-8 record in 116 career AHL games, posting a 2.75 GAA and a .903 save percentage.
