Avalanche sign Forsberg for the rest of the season

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - The Colorado Avalanche have signed Peter Forsberg for the rest of the season.

The team announced the deal with the former NHL MVP on Sunday, but did not release details.

Forsberg has been practicing with the team for two weeks and said he feels good enough to come back to the NHL after a three-year hiatus. He said he decided before Sunday morning's
practice if nothing went wrong he would seek a contract.

Forsberg has played in 13 NHL seasons, 11 with the Avalanche organization and has won two Stanley Cup titles, both with Colorado.

Forsberg has 885 points (249 goals and 636 assists) in 706 regular-season games with Quebec/Colorado, Philadelphia and Nashville.
