Colorado Avalanche Teams are eagerly awaiting the opening of free agency, which is less than a week away.

Many prominent players will hit the open market in mid July while many teams also have key restricted free agents that

they want to re-sign. Next, we will take a look at Colorado Avalanche. F Artturi Lehkonen: Montreal refused to trade

the winger by the deadline, but Joe Sakic parted ways with Justin Barron, a prospect blueliner, and a 2024 2nd-round

pick. This was enough to land him at 27 years old. Lehkonen and Colorado were pleased with the move. He proved

to be an excellent fit offensively as well as defensively, and he also scored two key goals in playoffs. Lehkonen is

not yet at the 40-point mark, but he has shown strong defensive skills and could surpass the $4MM mark with

a one-year contract. A long-term agreement that covers some UFA eligibility could bring him closer to $4.5MM.
