Avs’ new goalie up for No. 1 task

Adrian Dater
The Denver Post

It used to be everybody wanted to come to Denver to play for the Avalanche. Not so, anymore, as a last-place finish and a much tighter payroll have taken some of the luster off Colorado as an NHL destination.

To Craig Anderson, however, the Avalanche might as well still be considered Shangri-La.

Spurning offers from several other teams, Anderson signed a two-year, $3.6 million free-agent contract with the Avs on Wednesday and is expected to be the team’s No. 1 goalie this coming season.

“It’s a dream come true,” Anderson said. “It was the place I wanted to be, a city I’ve always loved. I think it’s a great opportunity for me, and I want to be part of the solution bringing the team back.”
