The Colorado Avalanche locked up a core piece of the club on Saturday by signing young star Cale Makar to a six-year, $54 million contract. With a $9 million AAV, the 22-year-old defenseman is now the fifth-highest paid defender tied with P.K. Subban and behind Erik Karlsson, Drew Doughty, and Roman Josi. Last season during his sophomore season in the NHL, Makar scored eight goals and recorded 44 total points in 44 games. Half his points came on the power play and he averaged more than 24 minutes of playing time per game. He finished second in the Norris Trophy race in 2020-21. Makar will be one of the top defenders in standard format fantasy hockey again in 2021-22 especially with the likes of Nathan MacKinnon and Mikko Rantanen around him.
Colorado Avalanche defenseman Cale Makar registered a power-play goal and added a primary assist as his team picked up a 3-2 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday night. The 22-year-old filled the scoresheet in this one - also posting a plus-two rating, four shots on goal and one hit in 24:49 of ice time in the win. If not for missing 12 games due to injury earlier in the season, Makar could be considered a legitimate front-runner to take home the Norris Trophy as the league's top defenseman in 2020-2021. In his second NHL season, Makar checks in over a point-per-game (43 points in 41 games) to go along with a a plus-13 rating, 22 power-play points and 101 shots on goal. There are few blueliners that can provide offense at the rate that he does and he'll look to keep adding to his totals when the Avs take on Vegas on Monday.
Colorado Avalanche's defenseman Cale Makar assisted on three goals in Monday's 5-2 win over Anaheim, becoming the fastest blueliner in NHL history to register five regular-season games with three-plus assists. He needed 79 games to do it. Makar has been very productive throughout the season, going pointless in back-to-back outings just once and averaging exactly a point per game through 22 contests. He's fired off 49 shots and delivered 25 hits while registering a nice plus-12 rating. Makar has quickly developed into an elite defenseman and the Coyotes will get to see him up close next on Wednesday.
Colorado Avalanche defenseman Cale Makar led his team to victory on Thursday, defeating the Vegas Golden Knights by a score 5-1. He lit the lamp once and added an assist. Since returning from injury, Makar has tallied two goals and three helpers. The young defenseman plays a massive role for Colorado, playing on the team's first power-play unit while averaging 23:53 minutes of ice time per game. The Avalanche extended their point streak to nine games. Colorado will try and keep their point streak going when they play against Vegas again on Saturday.
