Leschyshyn Comes Full Circle

The Colorado Avalanche have agreed to terms with unrestricted free agent defenseman Curtis Leschyshyn, reports The Quebec Nordiques (you remember them) originally drafted Leschyshyn 3rd overall in 1988 (after Mike Modano and Trevor Linden), so the blueliner returns to the franchise with whom he broke into the League.

Back in 1996, the Caps traded Keith Jones and a couple of picks to the Avs for Leschyshyn and Chris Simon, only to flip Leschyshyn to Hartford a week later for Andrei Nikolishin.

Quebec. Hartford. Good times.
