Incase you were living under a rock these past few months, it's been a very exciting time for the Colorado Avalanche.

First they went on a historic run in the playoffs and defeated the two-time defending Champion Tampa Bay Lightning to become the 2022 NHL Stanley Cup Champions.



Then they locked up some of the players that helped them win this cup to long term deals: Lehkonen (5 years $4,500,000 AAV), Nichushkin (8 years $6,125,000 AAV) and they also locked up their star forward Nathan MacKinnon to a long term deal.


MacKinnon who has been underpaid for most of his career, signed an incredible 8 year deal with an AAV of $12,600,000 making him the highest paid player in the National Hockey League.

While this team is predicted to take another run at a Stanley Cup this year, they are going to have to do it without a few players to start the season. They will start the season without captain Gabriel Landeskog, and projected 2nd line center JT Compher is still listed as day-to-day, but now the big news is, Nathan MacKinnon will possibly not be ready for seasons start.

Nathan MacKinnon tweaked something today, Jared Bednar said. Asked if the center is day-to-day, Bednar said, «I guess.»

He's optimistic J.T. Compher will be ready for opening night.
