André Benoît (Avalanche)

Twice a minor-league signing for the Habs, the five-foot-eleven blueliner took advantage of a thin Colorado defense corp to post career-highs in games (79), average ice time (20:13) and points (28) in 2013-14. The 30 year old journeyman is a good bet for team looking for a puck-mover to play on the third pairing.
