Siemens wasn't extended a qualifying offer from the Avalanche on Monday and will now become an unrestricted free agent, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.

Siemens played in a career-high 16 games for the Avalanche this past season, though he logged just two total points, 23 PIM and 22 hits. That wasn't enough to bet a qualifying offer and the 24-year-old will now be able to sign anywhere July 1 as an unrestricted free agent. Siemens' physical presence should earn him a look elsewhere, though he's not guaranteed to find anything more than a minor role.
