Colorado Avalanche signs a six-year deal with Cale Makar for $ 54 million

The budding superstar defender scored 44 points in 44 games last season. He had eight goals and 36 assists to show a point-per-game production. He didn’t stop in the playoffs either, racking up two goals and eight assists to speed up his team.

In a statement to nhl.com, he said, “I couldn’t be more excited to know that I’ll be calling Denver home for at least the next six years,” Makar said. “I will do everything in my power to bring a Stanley Cup to the NHL’s best fans. My Avalanche teammates are a great bunch and I cannot thank them enough for they have done so much to enable me to do my best.

“I would like to express my thanks to the Kroenke family, (Avalanche General Manager Joe) Sakic and (Assistant GM Chris) MacFarland for their trust and commitment over the years. I would also like to thank Steve, Brian, and Scott at Bartlett Hockey for their advice and work on this deal. I can’t wait to get back to work in the Ball Arena on October 13th. “

What that means for the future of avalanches

While the Avs are still negotiating the new signing of their captain Gabriel Landeskog, Makar’s signing had to have priority. He has shown that his skills are rare, especially for a young player. The team also have to sign goalkeeper Philipp Grubauer, so they had a lot of work.

Keeping Makar simply means the Avs are more competitive with him on the blueline. He is almost certain to win a Norris Trophy with his production and outstanding play. The Avs have a thriving superstar of their own, and he’s now tied for six more seasons.
