DENVER - First-round picks Gabriel Landeskog and Duncan Siemens have signed three-year deals with the Colorado Avalanche.

Landeskog was the second overall selection in the June draft, while Siemens was taken at No. 11. They are both scheduled to participate in the Avalanche's training camp this fall.
