Devon Toews appreciates the faith that Colorado showed in him when he was signed to a four-year contract on Tuesday.
"For sure, I'm grateful to (general manager) Joe [Sakic] and his staff for putting their faith in me for four years," Toews said. "[My wife and I are] excited just to be able to settle down somewhere. It's a crazy time right now with a lot of moving parts in the League and just the world in general. To kind of have that security, to know we can settle down and try and start a family here in one place without having to worry about moving around is something we're very excited about." Colorado acquired him from the New York Islanders on Oct. 12. The team values his smarts, two-way ability and puck-moving skills. Toews should be a good player for the speedy Avalanche in transition and could top 30 points in 2020-21 for the first time in his career. Oct 28 5:39 pm (EST)
