Who will receive a qualifying offer from Colorado?

As the Colorado Avalanche offseason rolls ahead to the July 13th opening of free agency, one under-the-radar yet important piece of business to conduct is the July 11th deadline for qualifying offers to get extended to Restricted Free Agents. These decisions impact not only the NHL roster but also the minor leagues as many players and prospects saw their Entry-Level Contracts end at the conclusion of the 2021-22 season.

With Artturi Lehkonen there is zero mystery if he will get a qualifying offer that would be equal to his 2021-22 season salary of $2.3M, but the question of what type of contract he receives from the Avalanche remains without an answer.
