Colorado Avalanche acquire Ruslan Salei from Florida Panthers

The Colorado Avalanche acquired Belarus defenseman Ruslan Salei from the Florida Panthers on Tuesday, giving up the rights to Latvian defenseman Karlis Skrastins and a NHL third-round draft pick.
Last season, the 33-year-old Salei had career highs with six goals and 26 assists.
Salei has played 11 NHL seasons, the last two with Florida after nine with the Anaheim Ducks. He's missed only four games in the past four seasons.
Colorado also acquired Adam Foote from the Columbus Blue Jackets for conditional first- and fourth-round draft choices.
Foote, 36, was drafted in 1989 when the franchise was still the Quebec Nordiques. He is third in games played with the franchise with 799 and second in scoring by defensemen with 234 points.
He played in 154 playoff games with the Avalanche franchise, second only to captain Joe Sakic.
