Hejduk Signs 1-year extension


In other Great Roundtable Timing news, the Avalanche and Milan Hejduk have reached an agreement on a 1-year contract extension. This announcement, of course, comes on the very day that a certain dashing Avalanche blogger speculated that we may start to hear trade rumors involving Hejduk before too long. That shouldn't be the case, now, as Hejduk is now signed for the next two seasons. Terms of the extension haven't been announced; he's currently in the final year of a deal that pays him $3.9 million. I'm thinking something in the $4.5 million range, but I expect capgeek.com to have the real numbers up shortly.

It's worth noting that Hejduk is currently 87 games behind Joe Sakic on the Avalanche all-time regular season games played list (Colorado only). Barring injury, he should be the leader by the time his contract ends. He's also 79 goals behind Sakic - doable, but it's probably going to take him more than two years to hit this one. He's 358 behind Sakic on the points list, so this one's not on the immediate horizon.

Really, really happy to see Hejduk extended. I'm glad we won't have to worry about seeing him moved at the deadline.
