Colorado Fans Welcome Back Stephane Yelle

The Colorado Avalanche brought back on old friend on Wednesday, welcoming Stephane Yelle back into the fold. Fans in the mile high city are welcoming him back with open arms, despite the fact that his role will be diminished this time around.

Here's SBN's Mile High Hockey:

The Colorado Avalanche have re-acquired one of MHH's Top 19 Avs of All Time - #15, Stephane Yelle. Yelle and minor league forward Harrison Reed for Cedric Lalonde-McNicoll and a 6th round draft pick. Yelle really needs no introduction to Avalanche fans, but I'll give a brief freshener anyway. Yelle spent 6 seasons in Colorado and was a key part of both Stanley Cup teams. He was traded to Calgary in the Chris Drury trade and I know most Avalanche fans are going to be ecstatic to have him back in the fold (even if his old #26 is no longer available). Yelle is a depth player at this point - probably 4th line center - but is a great veteran acquisition for the Avalanche.
