The Colorado Avalanche have signed forward Alex Galchenyuk to a professional tryout, according to The Athletic's Peter Baugh.

Galchenyuk totaled six goals and 21 points in 60 games with the Arizona Coyotes last season. He averaged 13:09 of ice time while playing on a one-year, league-minumum contract.

A veteran of 643 NHL games, Galchenyuk is years removed from his early-career success. He's failed to top 10 goals in each of the past three seasons, a far cry from his 30-goal campaign in 2015-16.

Galchenyuk will battle for a spot in Colorado's bottom six at training camp. The Avalanche lost depth forwards Nico Sturm and Nicolas Aube-Kubel in free agency.

Colorado has just over $1.9 million in cap space, according to CapFriendly.
