The Colorado Avalanche reinforced their defense by claiming Patrik Nemeth on waivers from Dallas.

The 25-year-old defenseman was a second-round pick by the Stars in 2010. He’s appeared in 108 career NHL games and has 14 assists.

Nemeth joins a Colorado blue line that already includes Erik Johnson, Tyson Barrie, Mark Barberio, Nikita Zadorov, Chris Bigras and Anton Lindholm.

In other moves Tuesday, the Avalanche assigned goaltender Joe Cannata, along with defensemen Duncan Siemens and David Warsofsky to San Antonio of the American Hockey League.

Colorado opens the regular season Thursday in New York against the Rangers.
