Devon Toews on contract negotiations with Avalanche going into last season: “My intent is to stay here the rest of my career”

Avalanche defenseman Devon Toews hopes to reach an agreement with the organization on a contract extension before the 2023-24 season, he said Wednesday during the team’s preseason media day.

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

The 29-year-old blueliner is entering the last year of a team-friendly deal with an average annual value of $4.1 million, which occupies 4.9% of the team’s salary cap space in the upcoming season (excluding Gabriel Landeskog’s $7 million).

He’s coming off his second consecutive 50-point season, in which 37 of his 43 assists in 2022-23 were at even strength.
