The 22-year-old forward scored eight goals and had 15 assists in 67 games for the Avalanche in 2019-20. “Tyson is a strong two-way player who has NHL experience at a young age and continues to grow his game,” general manager Joe Sakic said in a release. Sakic made it an offseason priority to retain Andre Burakovsky, Valeri Nichushkin, Ryan Graves and Jost.
Patrick: It’s hard to get a feel for a draft class so early, especially without picking in the top 5. With that being said, it looks like Joe did a good job of taking value where he could. Really like the addition of Foudy to the prospect forward pool.
The home of the NBA's Denver Nuggets and the NHL's Colorado Avalanche is being renamed Ball Arena as part of a global partnership with Kroenke Sports & Entertainment. The arena has been known as the Pepsi Center since it opened on Oct. 1, 1999. It also holds concerts and family entertainment events and houses indoor lacrosse team Colorado Mammoth.
