"We're proud to announce to our fans that Peter Forsberg has decided to come back and play with our franchise where he's enjoyed so much success early in his career," said Avalanche Executive Vice President and General Manager Francois Giguere in a statement. "His addition should complement our roster and will bring our team to an even higher competitive level."
Sources tell TSN Forsberg will earn $5 million (US) prorated for the remainder of the season, approximately $1 million.

Forsberg spent most of the 2007-08 season recovering from his foot and ankle injuries and said last week it was 'uncertain' that he would return to the NHL.

This is a huge surprise, Forsberg said a couple of weeks ago that he wouldn't make a return to the NHL this season because of his foot was feeling 100%, but now he signs with the Avs. Hopefully he can stay healthy and produce.

Really surprising, considering he said that he wouldn't be back this season. I wonder if this hadn't been in the works prior to his announcement to not return.

The Avs also brought back Adam Foote today in a deal w/ Columbus and also landed Salei on the defensive side of things

I am really interested to see Forsberg play, I'm hopeful that he'll be back soon, and hopefully he's going to be healthy. I've always been a fan of Forsberg, I'm just hopeful that he can return to what he used to be. Probably not going to happen, but it would be awesome to see.
