Not exactly huge news, but we’ll take whatever we can get at this point.

The Avalanche on Friday announced they have signed defenseman Jacob MacDonald to a two-year contract extension through the 2021-22 season.

MacDonald, 27, has 42 points (16 goals, 26 assists) in 56 games for the Colorado Eagles. He leads American Hockey League defensemen in goals and is fourth in points.

The Avalanche acquired MacDonald from the Florida Panthers for forward Dominic Toninato on June 28, 2019.

The 6-foot, 204-pound MacDonald began the 2018-19 season with the Panthers and scored a goal in his NHL debut in the season opener on Oct. 6 at Tampa Bay, his only point in two career NHL games.

He has 164 points (58 goals, 106 assists) in 238 career AHL games with the Springfield Falcons, Albany/Binghamton Devils, Springfield Thunderbirds and the Eagles.
