The Colorado Avalanche have finally re-signed Mikko Rantanen.
Rantanen has reportedly agreed to a six-year, $55.5 million deal which will keep him in Denver through the 2024-25 season.
Mikko Rantanen signs for 6-year, $9.25M AAV. Another big name off the board.

Rantanen had 31 goals and 87 points in 74 games played last season. He formed part of arguably the best line in hockey last season with Nathan MacKinnon and Gabriel Landeskog.
The Avalanche now have Nathan MacKinnon and Mikko Rantanen at $15.55M combined annually for each of the next 4 years which takes them through the meat of their 20s 👌
