DENVER (AP) - The Colorado Avalanche have signed defenseman Kyle Cumiskey and forward Justin Mercier to contracts.

The 22-year-old Cumiskey was Colorado's ninth selection (seventh round, 222nd overall) in the 2005 NHL draft. He skated in six games with the Avalanche last season before a season-ending shoulder injury Jan. 29.

Cumiskey played in 28 games for the Lake Erie Monsters, where he totaled 17 points. He has skated in 53 career NHL games, scoring seven points.

Mercier spent the last four seasons at Miami (Ohio) University, where he helped lead the Redhawks to the 2009 NCAA Championship game with 29 points in 40 games as a senior. The 22-year-old Mercier was Colorado's eighth selection (sixth round, 168th overall) in the 2005 draft.
