    Avs send Cole to Wild for Pateryn in swap of defensemen

    Colorado and Minnesota swapped veteran defensemen on Tuesday, with the Avalanche acquiring Greg Pateryn and the Wild receiving Ian Cole. The trade represents a significant salary-cap savings for Colorado from Cole’s $4.25 million hit to Pateryn’s $2.25 million. It also frees up a spot on the left side of the blue line for 19-year-old Avalanche prospect Bowen Byram.
