The Colorado Avalanche signed defenseman Erik Brannstrom to a one-year contract on Tuesday.

Terms were not disclosed, but multiple outlets reported he will earn $900,000 in 2024-25.

Brannstrom, 24, had 20 points (three goals, 17 assists) in 76 games with the Ottawa Senators in 2023-24.

Over parts of six seasons with the Senators, the Sweden native collected 69 points (seven goals, 62 assists) in 266 games.

The Golden Knights drafted him in the first round (15th overall) in 2017 and traded him to Ottawa in the deal that sent Mark Stone to Vegas in February 2019.
