The Avalanche have re-signed Andre Burakovsky to a two-year extension worth $9.8 million ($4.9M AAV).
Burakovsky earns a nice raise (from $3.25M to $4.9M) after setting career-highs in goals (20), assists (25), points (45) and PPP (11). Burakovsky has found a home in Colorado's top-6, sometimes on a line with Nathan MacKinnon, so he could take his point totals to another level in 2021.

The Avalanche acquired Andre Burakovsky from the Capitals for Scott Kosmachuk, a 2020 second-round pick and a 2020-third-round pick.
Burakovsky was picked No.23 overall back in 2013 but has yet to top 40 points in five NHL seasons. In his defence, Burakovsky has never played more than 13:50 TOI/gm, so the Avalanche will see what he can do for them in a larger role. The 24-year-old has tremendous speed, a great shot but had just 12 goals and 13 assists (25 points) in 76 games a season ago.
Burakovsky will be back in the Capitals lineup on Monday.
Burakovsky has been a healthy scratch for the last two games but will replace Nic Dowd on Monday. Burakovsky has not had a good season, scoring just five goals with four assists (nine points) in 38 games this season.
