The Colorado Avalanche re-signed forward Tyson Jost to a two-year contract on Friday.

He will receive $1.75 million next season and $2.25 million in 2022-23, according to reports.

Jost, 23, posted 17 points (seven goals, 10 assists) and a plus-14 plus/minus rating while skating in 54 of Colorado’s 56 games in 2021-22.

“Tyson took a big step last year and was a key contributor to our team. He has worked hard to improve his game and earn a spot in our lineup,” general manager Joe Sakic said in a news release. “Tyson is a guy with a lot of character who competes at a high level day in and day out. We are excited to have him under contract for another two seasons.”

Jost added two goals and two assists in 10 games during the 2021 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

A first-round pick (10th overall) by the Avalanche in 2016, Jost has 89 points (39 goals, 50 assists) and 86 penalty minutes in 262 games since making his NHL debut in 2017.
