Duchene’s entry level contract calls for him to make $900,000 in salary in each of the three seasons. The Avalanche cap hit will be $3.2 million a season when bonus figures are included.
“This is the first step, but I know I have a lot of work to do to reach my goal of playing in the NHL,” Duchene said in a statement released by the team.
