The Colorado Avalanche have claimed Marc-Andre Cliche off waivers from the LA Kings.
Cliche posted 10 goals, 10 assists and 46 penalty minutes in 57 games last season with the AHL’s Manchester Monarchs. Minus one game with the Kings during the 2009-10 campaign, Cliche has spent all six years of his professional career with Manchester.
Cliche was drafted in the second round, 56th overall, by the New York Rangers in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft. Before even playing an NHL game, Cliche was traded by the Rangers to the Los Angeles Kings along with Jason Ward and Jan Marek for Sean Avery and John Seymour.
