Surprise announcement from the Colorado Avalanche on the future of Drouin

Published December 31, 2023 at 9:29

What a special season for Jonathan Drouin with the Colorado Avalanche.

The former Montreal Canadien amassed two points in his first game in Colorado, then hit a major dry spell that led to his removal from the Avalanche lineup, numerous stays in the stands, and speculation about a possible future in Europe for him.

However, since then, Drouin has been unrecognizable and has completely turned things around.

He has really found his rhythm on the ice, and his coach has been entrusting him with significant responsibilities for several weeks now.

Drouin has accumulated 8 points in 8 games now, and an impressive 13 points in his last 17 games.

In total, he has 16 points in 34 games played.

Will Jonathan Drouin get a contract extension in Colorado?

Drouin, who is currently earning $825,000 per year until next summer, is a real bargain for the Avalanche, and many experts in Colorado believe (from good sources) that Joe Sakic and Chris MacFarland are preparing a nice contract extension for him.

A story to follow.

This would be such a beautiful story and great news for Jonathan, who could really establish himself in Colorado and settle his short and medium-term future.
