The 23-year old center Alex Kerfoot has finally decided which team to join. He picked the Colorado Avalanche, per Darren Dreger of TSN.com.

Darren Dreger reported that general manager Joe Sakic “did a great job selling Kerfoot on his fit with the [Avalanche]” and that he could have a big role if a trade does go down. The Colorado Avalanche were on Kerfoot’s list.

Furthermore, Kerfoot signing with the Avalanche could potentially end the era of Matt Duchene in Colorado, which would not be a bad idea, as he is controllable for this year and next year. That means that the Avalanche could receive a nice package in return for the 26-year old forward due to his contract. He is owed $6MM per season.

Lastly, in four years at Harvard, he put up 123 points (36 goals and 87 assists) and he was Harvard’s captain during his senior campaign. He was gifted in college, but can he carry his offensive talents with him to the National Hockey League.

 Note: The deal is a two-year entry-level pact.
