Matthew Tkachuk has taken the NHL by storm this season, dropping another 100 point season, earning a Hart Trophy nomination, and helping carry the Florida Panthers to the Stanley Cup Final. What has his impact been on the Panthers?
The Colorado Avalanche will no doubt try to sign Devon Toews this summer to an extension as soon as they can, but what might it actually cost?
All that and more in this Friday edition of Evan’s Daily.

Yes, it’s going to cost a lot of money if they want to do it, and yes, they might have to move someone to make room, but Devon Toews isn’t someone the Avalanche want to part ways with. So if they try to sign him to an extension, what will it cost?
We finally got some real news regarding the Avalanche, although it might not be the best news. Young Finnish winger Sampo Ranta has decided to head to Sweden for a few years, signing a 2-year deal with MoDo. Even though he’s gone, he’s still likely to get a qualifying offer, and he’s still staying in the family.
Avs scout Henrik Gradin is also the GM of Modo. Look at this as a 2-year loan to an SHL team if you want. https://t.co/qKWc5E40iU

From the folks over at Florida Hockey Now, how Matthew Tkachuk willed the Panthers to the Stanley Cup Final.
The Vegas Golden Knights were hoping to join Florida on Thursday night, but were unable to finish the job against the Dallas Stars. After a Game Four loss, they’ll now have a chance to clinch the series on home ice.
