Cale Makar signs entry-level contract with Avs

Cale Makar, the University of Massachusetts' first-ever Hobey Baker Award victor, announced Sunday that he's headed to the Colorado Avalanche on Sunday, one day after playing in the program's first-ever NCAA championship game.

He'll join an Avalanche team that is now knotted up 1-1 in their first-round playoff series with the West's top-seeded team in Calgary.

In 2019, the versatile defenseman helped lead the Minutemen to the NCAA Frozen Four Championship Game. With great skating ability, an outstanding two-way skill set and high hockey IQ, Makar is considered to be one of the purest blue line talents to come out of the college hockey ranks in some time. "He is a game-changing type of player who made a lasting impact on the UMass hockey program".

Makar had 16-33-49 totals in his sophomore season at UMass and 21-49-70 totals in two seasons with the program. He was the first defenseman in history to lead Hockey East in overall scoring and broke the UMass single-season school record for points by a defenseman. "We are excited to have him join our team".

The Avalanche squared their best-of-seven series against the Flames Saturday night at 1-1 thanks to an overtime victor from Nathan MacKinnon.
