The Colorado Avalanche re-signed forward Tyson Jost and goaltender Hunter Miska, with Jost getting a one-year deal and Miska inked to a two-year extension.

"Heading into the offseason we made it a priority to sign our restricted free agents in Andre (Burakovsky), Valeri (Nichushkin), Ryan (Graves) and now Tyson," Colorado general manager Joe Sakic said in a statement. "Tyson is a strong two-way player who has NHL experience at a young age and continues to grow his game.

"Hunter provides depth and upside at the goaltending position and we look forward to having him under contract for two more years as he continues to develop."

Jost, 22, collected 23 points (8 goals, 15 assists) in 67 games for the Avalanche this past season, equaling his career best in assists set during the 2018-19 campaign. He skated in his 200th career contest on Feb. 26 and has produced 72 points (32 goals, 40 assists) in 208 career games.

The Avs selected Jost in the first round (10th overall) of the 2016 draft.

Miska has a 48-23-7 record in 87 career AHL contests. He has played in one NHL contest, making his debut with the Arizona Coyotes on Nov. 13, 2018, at Detroit.
