Avalanche head coach Patrick Roy said that Brad Stuart was "phenomenal" in Saturday night's win over Calgary.

"Brad Stuart was phenomenal," Roy said of the veteran Avalanche defenseman. "I know he doesn't have (one of the) stars because we're looking at stats, scores and stuff like this, but he was really good. He blocked a lot of shots, he was physical and he played really good on the PK. I thought it was a great team effort. It was a good moment to have a solid game like we had."

Brad Stuart will play in his 1000th career NHL game on Thursday night in Pittsburgh.

"It’s a nice accomplishment, something that you don’t really think about when you come into the league," Stuart said. "You’re just trying to stay in the league and establish yourself, and then as I got closer and closer I realized how it’s a pretty good milestone for someone to play that many games. It’s a lot games, but I’ve had a lot of fun and made a lot of good memories." The Avalanche will honor Stuart on December 23rd at the Pepsi Center.

Brad Stuart's new two-year deal comes with a modified no-trade clause.

Stuart can limit his potential destinations to seven teams of his choosing. While his cap hit isn't terrible at $3.6 million annually through the 2016-17 campaign, it seems unlikely that Colorado will find many interested parties for him if they did want to trade him in a year or two given that he'll turn 35 in November.

Brad Stuart has agreed to a two-year, $7.2 million contract extension with Colorado.

In other words, Stuart will maintain his 2014-15 salary of $3.6 million. Stuart is 34 years old, so locking him up through the 2016-17 campaign is certainly a risk. He had 11 points in 61 games with San Jose last season. The Avalanche acquired him over the summer in exchange for a 2016 second round pick and 2017 sixth rounder.
