Colorado Avalanche re-signs Gabriel Landeskog to eight-year contract at the 11th hour
At the 11th hour, the Colorado Avalanche reconciled with Gabriel Landeskog.
While last week it looked like the two sides were far from each other in the talks, they closed the gap and inked their captain.
The club announced the deal on Tuesday night, a deal that was first reported by Sportsnet Elliott Friedman.
The contract is for a VAA of $ 7 million and according to TSN Bob McKenzie, the deal comes with a full no-move clause in the first four years and a modified no-trade clause in the last four seasons.
The deal fell on edge and if Landeskog was not signed before the free agency opened, the two sides could not sign an eight-year extension because that window would have closed.
He was listed as the second free agent by Daily confrontationby Frank Seravalli.
Landeskog has spent his entire career with the Avalanche after being drafted second in the 2011 draft. He has played 687 games in the past 10 seasons, scoring 218 goals and 512 points.
According to PuckPedia, the Avalanche now has a cap of $ 9.27 million with RFA’s Tyson Jost and Connor Timmins to sign.
