The Colorado Avalanche have signed forward A.J. Greer to a one-year contract for the 2019-20 season.

Last season, the 22-year-old Greer spent time with both the Avalanche and the American Hockey League's Colorado Eagles. He notched two points (one goal, one assist) in 15 games with the Avs and 44 points (19 goals, 25 assists) in 54 outings with the Eagles.

Greer, a second-round pick (39th overall) by the Avalanche in the 2015 NHL Draft, scored his first career NHL goal on Feb. 20 vs. the Winnipeg Jets and has registered six points (one goal, five assists) in 37 career NHL games.

Greer was arrested and charged with assault in July. While in New York City with the Columbus Blue Jackets' Sonny Milano, Greer and Milano fought another individual early on the morning of July 7 before the police were called.
