The Colorado Avalanche and their captain, Gabriel Landeskog are working on an extension per new reports. Landeskog is slated to become an unrestricted free agent on July 28th. All indications are he should have a new deal before then.

General Manager, Joe Sakic will wait on completing the deal until after the expansion draft on July 21st. This allows the Avs to protect another forward. It’s also been reported that the Avs are looking to lock up RFA, Cale Makar to a long term deal.
