Avs Trade Ian Cole To Wild For Greg Pateryn 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed Jan 20, 2021 1:09 am

Colorado and Minnesota swapped defensemen on Tuesday, with the Avalanche acquiring Greg Pateryn and the Wild receiving Ian Cole.

The trade represents a significant salary-cap savings for Colorado from Cole\'s $4.25 million hit to Pateryn\'s $2.25 million. It also frees up a spot on the left side of the blue line for 19-year-old Avalanche prospect Bowen Byram.

\"The trade really works for them and the trade really works for us,\" Wild GM Bill Guerin said. \"And that\'s what\'s most important, I think, in making deals is you make a fair deal.\"
