Avalanche sign Yakupov to one-year deal

Nail Yakupov is moving to Denver.

The Colorado Avalanche announced Tuesday that they’ve signed the 23-year-old winger. It’s reportedly a one-year deal worth $875,000.

The first overall draft pick in 2012, Yakupov became an unrestricted free agent after the St. Louis Blues chose last week not to extend him a qualifying offer.

Yakupov played 40 games for the Blues last season. He battled a knee injury and finished with just three goals and six assists.

In Colorado, Yakupov should get a decent opportunity to prove himself. The Avs had the NHL’s worst offense and worst power play last season.
