The Colorado Avalanche are going to sit out the first day of free agency.
“We’re not going to be looking that day,” GM Joe Sakic told the Denver Post. “As the summer goes on, we’ll see what good fits are. But on the July 1, don’t expect us to go after any big long-term deals. Within our own, we’re going to discuss what we have within, but outside on July 1 we’re not going to go after a big splash.”
This summer, after missing the playoffs for a second straight year, their priorities will be getting restricted free agents Nathan MacKinnon and Tyson Barrie under contract.
