Avalanche's Cale Makar: Signs six-year extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Makar signed a six-year, $54 million contract extension with the Avalanche on Saturday, PuckPedia reports.

Makar is just 22 years old and has already established himself as one of the best defensemen in the league, having posted an eye-popping 20 goals, 94 points, 225 shots and a plus-29 rating while averaging 22:26 of ice time per contest in 101 appearances through his first two NHL seasons. The fourth overall pick from the 2017 Draft will continue to be a Norris Trophy candidate as well as a high-end fantasy asset for years to come.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Makar recorded an assist, four hits, four blocked shots and two shots on net in Thursday's 6-3 loss to the Golden Knights in Game 6.

Makar had the secondary helper on Andre Burakovsky's second-period goal. After a four-point explosion in Game 1 versus the Golden Knights, Makar was limited to three assists in the next five games. The 22-year-old defenseman ended the postseason with 10 points in as many contests. He added 23 shots, 17 hits and 13 blocks in a top-pairing role.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Makar posted a power-play assist, five hits, three blocked shots and two shots on goal in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Golden Knights in Game 3.

Makar set up Mikko Rantanen's goal at 5:04 of the third period. Through seven playoff outings, Makar has produced nine points (six on the power play), 17 shots on net, 11 hits and eight blocked shots. The defenseman should continue to play a big role on the blue line, with plenty of chances to chip in on the scoresheet.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Makar recorded a power-play assist and three hits in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Golden Knights in Game 2.

Makar found Nathan MacKinnon, who set up Mikko Rantanen's tally 2:07 into overtime. The 22-year-old Makar has carried over his steady offense into the postseason with two goals and six assists in his last six games. The star defenseman should continue to find success, especially on the power play, where he's earned five of his eight points in the playoffs.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Makar set up Nathan MacKinnon's first-period tally to give the Avalanche a 2-0 lead. The 22-year-old Makar has racked up a goal and an assist with the man advantage through two postseason games.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Makar opened the scoring at 15:15 of the first period. The 22-year-old defenseman racked up 22 of his 44 points in the regular season on the power play, and he's back at it in the postseason. Makar will likely log top-pairing minutes while working on the first man-advantage unit in the playoffs.

Makar helped out on an Andre Burakovsky goal at 18:58 of the second period. The 22-year-old Makar is the only defenseman to play in at least 40 games and maintain a point-per-game pace this season. He picked up 44 points (eight goals, 36 helpers), 104 shots on net, a plus-17 rating and 36 blocked shots through 44 contests. Among blueliners, Makar is tied for fifth in points with the Capitals' John Carlson.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Makar scored a goal on seven shots, dished a power-play assist and added two PIM in Friday's 3-2 win over the Kings.

Makar set up a Mikko Rantanen tally in the first period before scoring one of his own in the second. The 22-year-old Makar is up to seven goals, 41 points (21 on the power play), 97 shots on net, a plus-11 rating and 10 PIM through 40 outings. There's little reason to think he'll be bumped from the top pairing or first power-play unit anytime soon, given his solid results throughout the year.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Makar set up Andre Burakovsky's decisive tally just 41 seconds into overtime. The 22-year-old Makar is up to 39 points, 86 shots on goal and a plus-12 rating through 38 contests. He continues to play north of a point-per-game pace -- that'll work for just about all fantasy blue lines.

Makar has 37 points in 36 games, with 20 of those points coming on the power play.
