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.

About The Author

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page: http://www.thehockeyhouse.net
