“J.S. provided leadership, stability and a veteran presence to our team last season,” Colorado general manager Greg Sherman said in a statement. “He helped solidify our goaltending position.”
Giguere, 35, played in 32 games last season posting a 15-11-3 record, with 2.28 goals against average and a .919 saves percentage.
