Staying in the Central Division, the Colorado Avalanche took care of a restricted free agent of their own, as Mikko Rantanen received a six-year contract that is worth $55.5 million. The contract keeps him with the Avalanche through the 2024-2025 season, and will pay him an average of $9.25 million per season. That salary is flexible between each season, including him getting $12 million each of the first two years, and just $6 million the final season. He joins Nathan MacKinnon as the Avalanche stars that are locked in through at least the next four seasons. Rantanen is coming off a career year that saw him post 31 goals and 56 assists, which are both career highs. These two restricted free agent deals leave Jesse Pulujujarvi of the Edmonton Oilers as the only restricted free agent still unsigned.
