Today, the Colorado Avalanche announced the signing of captain Milan Hejduk to a one-year contract worth $2 million.

Coming off the least productive season since his rookie career, many people thought that Hejduk could be about ready to hang up the skates and call it a career.  

He undoubtedly has a lot that he wants to prove after his worst season as a professional.

Hejduk wants to prove that he hasn't lost a step. He wants to prove he can still play with the best in the world and he's capable of being a solid captain in the NHL. He wants to prove to the fans that he can get back his 20-goal touch.
