CALE MAKAR SIGNS MONSTER DEAL

JUL 24, 2021  (11H02)      T. TADI
The Colorado Avalanche announced on Saturday morning that they've re-signed Cale Makar to a six-year contract
worth $54 million ($9 million AAV).

"In just over two seasons, Cale has already established himself as one of the premier defensemen in the National Hockey League," said Avalanche Executive Vice President / General Manager Joe Sakic. "His ability to play in all situations and at both ends of the ice makes him truly unique and we are excited to have him anchor our blueline for years to come."

Makar, 22, had another great season for Colorado, one that saw him finish as a finalist for the Norris Trophy. In 44 games, he had 44 points (8 G, 36 A), 12 penalty minutes, and was a +17.

"I couldn't be more excited knowing I'll be calling Denver home for at least the next six years," said Makar. "I will do everything in my power to bring a Stanley Cup to the best fans in the NHL. My Avalanche teammates are an amazing group of guys, and I can't thank them enough as they played such a huge part in enabling me to perform at my best. I want to extend my appreciation to the Kroenke family, Mr. Sakic and Mr. (Chris) MacFarland for their long-term confidence and commitment to me. I also want to say thanks to Steve, Brian, and Scott of Bartlett Hockey for their guidance and work on this deal. I can't wait to get back to work on October 13th at Ball Arena."
