Jost signed a two-year, $4 million extension with the Avalanche on Friday.
Jost has been a decent bottom-six contributor for the Avalanche, as he would have broken the 20-point mark for a fourth consecutive season if last year had been a full-length campaign. The 10th overall selection from the 2016 draft isn't asked to do too much on a deep Avalanche team, but Jost has the skills to move up the lineup and hold his own when injuries strike.
Jost scored a power-play goal on two shots and blocked two shots in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Golden Knights in Game 2.
Jost restored a one-goal lead for the Avalanche with his tally at 17:08 of the first period. The center has stepped up in the playoffs with four points, 11 shots on net and a plus-2 rating through six games. He's filling in as the second-line center with Nazem Kadri suspended.
Jost produced an assist, two shots on goal, two PIM and a plus-2 rating in Sunday's 7-1 win over the Golden Knights in Game 1.
Jost set up Cale Makar for the game's final goal in a statement-making win from the Avalanche. The 23-year-old Jost was a solid depth scorer with two points in four games versus the Blues in the first round. He'll get most of his minutes in a middle-six role with minimal power-play time, so he could be a bit limited on offense. With just nine shots on net, six hits and four PIM in five playoff outings, he hasn't provided much non-scoring production.
Jost scored a goal on two shots in Friday's 5-1 win over the Blues in Game 3.
Jost scored at 16:08 of the second period, briefly giving the Avalanche a 3-0 lead before Tyler Bozak got the Blues on the board nine seconds later. The 23-year-old Jost has two points, seven shots on net and four hits through three playoff games. He could emerge as a solid option for secondary scoring in the middle six.
Jost notched an assist and two hits in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Blues in Game 2.
Jost set up Brandon Saad's empty-net goal in the third period. In the second period, Jost caught Blues defenseman Robert Bortuzzo with a high elbow. There wasn't a penalty on the play, but that doesn't mean Jost is clear of any supplemental discipline. The 23-year-old forward could face a hearing with the Department of Player Safety prior to Friday's Game 3.
Jost scored two goals on seven shots in Thursday's 5-1 win over the Kings.
Jost tied the game at 1-1 with his tally at 9:46 of the second period. Less than two minutes later, he scored again, and the Avalanche never looked back. Jost finished a difficult regular season with seven tallies, 10 assists, 92 shots on net and a plus-14 rating in 54 contests. Four of his goals have come in the last six games, so he should have some confidence heading into the playoffs.
Jost scored a goal in Friday's 3-2 win over the Kings.
Jost tallied at 2:56 of the second period to give the Avalanche a 2-1 lead, and they remained ahead for the rest of the game. The 23-year-old forward has five tallies, 10 assists, 83 shots on net, 42 hits and a plus-10 rating through 50 appearances. He filled in for Nathan MacKinnon (lower body) on the top line Friday, but Jost has mainly been a bottom-six option in 2020-21.
Jost scored a goal and added a pair of hits in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Sharks.
Jost broke a scoreless deadlock with his backhand tally at 15:39 of the second period. The 23-year-old has had an inconsistent season -- entering Wednesday, he was on a six-game drought after posting assists in five consecutive contests before that. He's up to 14 points, 82 shots on net, 42 hits and a plus-9 rating in 49 appearances.
Jost generated an assist in Thursday's 4-2 win over the Blues.
Jost set up Brandon Saad's first-period goal that tied the game at 1-1. The 23-year-old Jost has logged a helper in each of the last five contests. For the season, he's picked up 13 points, 71 shots on net, a plus-10 rating and 35 hits in 42 outings.
Jost recorded an assist and two PIM in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Blues.
Jost set up Brandon Saad for the Avalanche's fourth goal of the game at 11:17 of the second period. This stood as the game-winner. Jost remains the third-line center for now, although the newly acquired Carl Soderberg could also fill that role. Soderberg worked as a second-line winger Wednesday. Jost has 12 points 70 shots on net, 22 PIM and a plus-9 rating through 41 appearances.
Jost could be replaced as the third-line center by the recently acquired Carl Soderberg (not injury related), Adrian Dater of Colorado Hockey Now reports.
The Avalanche acquired Soderberg from Chicago at the trade deadline Monday, and he was not available to play later that day against the Coyotes. The 35-year-old center but could be ready to roll Wednesday in St. Louis. Dater speculates that Colorado is looking for a skosh more offense from its third-line center, where Jost has 11 points in 40 games and a 4.3 shooting percentage. Soderberg has 15 points in 34 games and a 17.1 shooting percentage. Head coach Jared Bednar did not elaborate on Soderberg's role when asked Monday, per Dater.
Jost recorded an assist in Monday's 4-2 win over the Coyotes.
Jost earned the secondary assist on Brandon Saad's opening tally in the first period. The 23-year-old Jost has helpers in three straight games. His recent surge put him at 11 points, a plus-9 rating and 20 PIM through 40 contests in a third-line role.

Jost had the secondary helper on winger Valeri Nichushkin's goal late in the second period. The 23-year-old Jost snapped a four-game point drought with his assist. He's at nine points, 67 shots, 33 hits and a plus-7 rating in 38 contests this year.
Jost had an assist, one shot on net, one hit, one blocked shot and four PIM in Wednesday's 9-3 win over Arizona.
Jost had the primary assist on the first of Joonas Donskoi's three goals, all in the first period, giving him points in each of the last two games. The 2016 first-round draft pick came alive in March, like many members of the Avalanche. After starting the season with just three points over the first 26 games, Jost has five points in the last seven contests. It helps having the hottest scorer in the NHL on his line; Donskoi's bagged nine markers over the last 10 games.
Jost scored a goal on four shots and added two blocks Monday in a 5-2 win over the Ducks.
Jost found a rebound in front and roofed it past Anaheim netminder Ryan Miller, giving the Avalanche a 2-1 lead just under four minutes into the second period. It was just the fourth goal of the year for Jost, who does have four points in the last six games. The 22-year-old was a first-round pick in 2016, but that pedigree has not yet translated into offensive success for the University of North Dakota product.
Jost notched two assists, five shots on goal, three hits and a plus-2 rating in Monday's 5-1 win over the Coyotes.
Jost set up Joonas Donskoi for an empty-netter in the third period, then did it again on the latter's tally in the final seconds of the contest. The 23-year-old Jost has picked up the pace with three points in his last two games. He's up to six points, 51 shots and a plus-3 rating through 28 outings.
Jost scored a goal on a team-high five shots on net with one hit and one blocked shot in Saturday's 6-0 win over the Wild.
Off a feed from Joonas Donskoi, Jost one-timed a slapper from the left circle that changed direction and eluded Kaapo Kahkonen to give Colorado a 4-0 lead early in the second period. It was just the second goal and fourth point in 27 games for the third-line pivot, who also sparkled at the dot, winning seven of 10 draws.
Jost collected an assist, two shots on goal and two PIM in Friday's 3-2 overtime win over the Ducks.
Jost's helper was his third point in 19 outings this year. With Colorado playing without star center Nathan MacKinnon, Jost skated some shifts on the second line on a night when head coach Jared Bednar juggled forwards all night. The 22-year-old Jost has added 25 shots, 12 hits and 10 PIM. Prior to Friday's game, he's been limited to bottom-six work due to his struggles.
Jost scored a goal on five shots in Saturday's 6-2 win over the Coyotes.
Jost finally deposited his first goal of the season in his 16th appearance. He hadn't registered a point since Jan. 26 against the Sharks when he had one assist. The 22-year-old has topped 20 points in each of the last three seasons, so his slow start to 2020-21 is concerning. With little else on his stat line (18 shots, 10 hits, eight PIM), fantasy managers can leave Jost off their rosters.
Jost was activated from non-roster injured reserve Saturday, per the NHL's official media site.
Jost is eligible to play in Saturday's game against the Golden Knights after missing the last two games while in the NHL's COVID-19 protocol. However, it's unclear if he'll draw into the lineup.
