Bellemare (undisclosed) put pen to paper on a two-year, $3.6 million contract with the Avalanche on Monday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
Bellemare dealt with an undisclosed injury at the end of the 2018-19 campaign that was expected to be good to go in 2-3 weeks, so it seems likely the veteran center will be good to go for the start of training camp. The Frenchman's ceiling is likely in the 15-20 in a bottom-six role, but his gritty style of play should endear him to fans and teammates alike.
Updating a previous report, Bellemare (undisclosed) dealt with an injury during the conference quarterfinals that was met with a 2-to-3 week return timetable, Adam Hill of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
While Bellemare missed Game 7 against the Sharks -- amounting to a 5-4 overtime loss -- his injury shouldn't carry over to the offseason to a significant degree, and at this rate, he should be just fine for training camp ahead of the 2018-19 campaign. The bigger question is whether fantasy owners will want to consider drafting a bottom-six grinder who only mustered six goals and nine assists through 76 regular-season contests -- frankly, we highly doubt it.

Still, unless it's something significant, the veteran center should be ready to go for 2019-20, assuming he lands with a team during free agency this summer. If he does continue to play next season, the 34-year-old figures to be just below the 20-point mark given he has never reached that threshold in his career.

Bellemare (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision against the Jets on Thursday, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.
Bellemare isn't met with much fanfare in the fantasy realm as a fourth-line energy cog who's produced only 14 points (five goals, nine assists) through 72 games, but Vegas hasn't had much experience doing without the relatively durable center, as he has only missed one game all season.
