Avalanche Match Ryan O’Reilly’s Offer Sheet From Flames, Keeping Forward in Colorado

Ryan O’Reilly‘s contract negotiations with the Colorado Avalanche have come to an end, thanks to the Calgary Flames.

The Avs have matched the offer sheet that O’Reilly signed with the Flames, according to the team. That means the 22-year-old forward will make $10 million over this season and next, with $3.5 coming in 2013 and then $6.5 million in the 2013-14 season.

Colorado had seven days to match the Flames’ offer once O’Reilly agreed to it, but only needed one.
