Devon Toews would like to get a contract extension done with the Avs

Bennett Durando of the Denver Post: 29-year-old Colorado Avalanche defenseman Devon Toews is entering the final year of his four-year contract that carries a $4.1 million salary cap hit.

Toews said last week that he hopes to be able to remain with the team well past this season.

“My intent is to stay here the rest of my career,”

Toews spoke this past offseason to management about getting a contract done.

“It’s a business, right, so we both have sides that we’re trying to get done,” he said. “There’s their side, and there’s my side as well. So we’ll hopefully find some common ground here. I’d rather it not drag on into the season. … If we’re able to get that done, that would be awesome.”
