According to the Kraken, the team and Grubauer signed a 6-year deal worth $33.6 million.

The former Avalanche goaltender averaged a 2.41 Goals Against Average (GAA) and a .918 save percentage in three seasons. The Avalanche saw three straight playoff berths with Grubauer between the pipes. Each season ended against a second round opponent.

Some big Avalanche contracts were set to expire this off season. Colorado General Manager, Joe Sakic, was able to get two big names to re-sign with the club. Defenseman, Cale Makar, signed a 6-year/$54 million contract, and Capitan, Gabriel Landeskog, agreed to an 8-year/$56 million deal.
