Tynan, 28, was the Colorado Eagles’ lone AHL All-Star this season and has seen action in 16 NHL games with the Avs. He leads the Eagles with 47 points in 42 games and has one point with the big club. His 42 assists rank second among all AHL players.
A four-year college player at Notre Dame, the 5-foot-9 Tynan signed a one-year contract with the Avs last summer, paying him $425,000 in the minors and $700,000 in the NHL. He was previously with the Columbus Blue Jackets and Vegas Golden Knights’ organizations but played just three combined NHL games with those teams.
