Avalanche sign defenseman Devon Toews to 4-year deal
DENVER (AP) - The Colorado Avalanche has signed a four-year deal with newly acquired defense attorney Devon Toews.
The contract for Toews runs for the 2023-24 season, the team announced on Tuesday.
Colorado picked Toews up from the New York Islanders on October 12, in exchange for a second election in 2021 and another in 22.
The 26-year-old Toews had six goals and 22 assists in 68 games for the islanders last season. He played in all of the team's 22 playoff games, in which he had two goals and eight assists.
"Devon is a shrewd two-way puck motion defender who is a long-lived defender and makes a great transition," said Joe Sakic, general manager of Avalanche, in a statement.
Toews was a fourth round pick by the Islanders in 2014. He made his NHL debut on December 23, 2018 in Dallas.
