2023 Fantasy Outlook
Toews didn't pile up points at the same rate last season as he did during the 2021-22 campaign, but he still hit the 50-point mark for a second straight year. He also set new career highs with 165 shots on goal, 138 blocked shots and 93 hits over 80 games. Toews has become a dependable multi-category threat from the back end, while forming a dynamic defense pairing with Cale Makar. The 29-year-old Toews should be able to record similar statistics during the 2023-24 campaign. Read Past Outlooks

Toews produced an assist and two shots on goal in Sunday's 7-4 loss to the Stars.
ANALYSIS
Toews has been steady with a goal and six assists over his last eight appearances. The 30-year-old defenseman is up to 47 points, 154 shots on net, 107 blocked shots, 73 hits and a plus-24 rating over 78 appearances. He continues to play on the top pairing and second power-play unit, which helps him to stay involved on offense, but he'll still need a hot finish to reach the 50-point mark for a third straight campaign.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Progress on contract extension
DColorado Avalanche
October 13, 2023
Per Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet, the Avalanche and Toews are making progress on a contract extension.
ANALYSIS
Toews is in the final season of a four-year, $16.4 million contract signed in October of 2020 and had set the first game of this season as the deadline for negotiations. The good news is that negotiations are still ongoing, even though the Avalanche opened the season with a 5-2 victory over LA on Wednesday. Should Toews be allowed to enter free agency at the end of the season, he would likely be highly sought after by a plethora of teams. Toews had seven goals and 50 points in 80 games last season after a career high 13 goals and 57 points in 66 games during the 2021-22 season.

Colorado's acquisition of Toews from the Islanders in October 2020 for a pair of second-round picks is going to go down as one of the biggest heists in recent memory. The 28-year-old rearguard shattered his previous high-water marks a season ago, finishing with 13 goals, 44 assists, 57 points, 158 shots on goal, 12 power-play points and a plus-52 rating in 66 games. Toews then added five goals and 15 points in 20 playoff games to help the Avalanche win the Stanley Cup. There's no doubt playing alongside Cale Makar on Colorado's top defensive pair has done wonders for Toews' fantasy value, but he's a good, borderline great, player in his own right. Toews projects as a high-end No. 2 fantasy defender again this coming fall.
Toews enjoyed a career year in 2020-21 with nine goals and 22 assists across 53 games. He also added a plus-29 rating, 87 blocked shots and 121 shots on goal, displaying a solid two-way game worthy of a top-pairing spot on the Avalanche's young and talented defense. He may not shoot 7.4 percent again, but it's clear the 27-year-old will play a key role in the team's success this season, especially when forming an elite top pairing with Cale Makar. Toews will do the bulk of his scoring at even strength, but he should again top 30 points while driving play in all three zones as the engine of the Avalanche's defense corps. Without much power-play time to look forward to, the BC native will likely be a late-round pick in fantasy drafts.
Toews had a career year across the board with the Islanders last season, setting new personal bests in essentially every single category, including games played (68), goals (six), assists (22), PIM (16), shots (122), power-play points (six), hits (55), blocks (75) and average ice time (20:31). The Isles couldn't afford to re-sign the restricted free agent this offseason, so they ended up trading him to Colorado in October in exchange for a pair of second-round picks. Shortly thereafter, the Avalanche signed Toews to a four-year, $16.4 million contract. Toews' ice time may dip a bit in 2020-21, as he's expected to skate with Ian Cole on Colorado's third pairing, but he'll still see ample usage with the man advantage as a member of the Avs' second power-play unit, which will bolster his scoring upside. He'll have eight goal, 35-point potential over the course of a full season, making him a nice fourth or fifth option at defense for fantasy players looking to add depth in the later rounds of this year's drafts.
Toews made his NHL debut on Dec. 23, and besides a brief stint back in the AHL around the All-Star break, stayed with the Islanders for the rest of the season. He played mostly in place of an injured Thomas Hickey, who missed 29 games because of an upper-body injury. Toews played so well, though, that he remained in the lineup instead of Hickey after he became healthy. In 48 NHL games, the 25-year-old posted five goals, 18 points and a plus-7 rating. He didn't play much while short handed, but Toews did become a regular on the Islanders' second power-play unit. Coach Barry Trotz will have some major decisions to make on his blue line in 2019-20, and a late-summer trade isn't out of the question, but Toews will head into training camp in contention with Hickey for the Islanders' No. 6 defenseman spot.
Toews is gradually making his way through the Islanders system, adding 13 goals and 54 assists over 106 games with AHL Bridgeport over the past two seasons. He hasn't seen the bright lights of the NHL, but his time should come soon considering the Isles finished with the worst goal differential (minus-32) in the league last year and lost all-world pivot John Tavares to the Maple Leafs in July.
