Tyson Barrie has accounted for nine points through 20 contests this season.

"I feel like I've played well," Barrie said. "There are obviously things where I'd like to contribute more, but that comes with the team, and I think we're starting to go a little bit, starting to score some more goals." He scored just one goal in his first 20 games last season and finished with 13, so fantasy owners shouldn't panic over his two goals so far in 2016-17. Barrie is working hard to take care of his own end, while logging heavy minutes against the opposition's top lines. He feels that will eventually lead to more opportunities offensively. Barrie has posted one goal and two assists in the last four games, so he could be turning the corner.

The Colorado Avalanche dodged a bullet by re-signing Tyson Barrie, and he showed promise in a season-opening 6-5 win against the Dallas Stars.

Barrie scored a goal and an assist, enjoyed a +2 rating, two PIM, one SOG and one blocked shot during a busy Saturday. Nathan MacKinnon looked dangerous in his own right, collecting 1G and 1A of his own.

Tyson Barrie will play "important minutes" for the Avalanche.

"Obviously, he's a gifted offensive player," new bench boss Jared Bednar said. "He's going to defend like everyone else on our team, defend hard and compete hard within our system and the structure which we play. We're going to use him to his strengths every chance we get. He's a guy who can help us produce offensively and we'll lean on him to do that at all times through the season." Barrie has 50-point potential again in 2016-17 after he surpassed that mark in 2014-15 and finished with a total of 49 last year.

Tyson Barrie is glad to have the security of a four-year contract.

"It's nice not to play for a deal every year," he said. "With that being said, I have a long way to go as a player, and I know that. There's another level to my game that I'm looking to take it to and really become that next-level defenseman in this league. This deal represents that, and it's something I'm going to take pride in." Barrie wants to become an all-around defender, who can be used against the top lines of the opposition while continuing to contribute offensively. He feels ready to step up and serve as a leader of the team.

Jul 27 - 10:18 AM

He's coming off of a two-year, $5.2 million contract and had 49 points in 78 games last season.

Jul 5 - 5:45 PM

It appears that Tyson Barrie and the Colorado Avalanche will head to arbitration seeing as a long-term deal is not looking likely.

Barrie has been linked to the Oilers in a trade but the Avalanche seem to want to keep the talented defenseman. It is well known that arbitration has been known to harm relationships between players and management seeing as things are said by management about the player in order to lower the contract awarded by the arbitrator.
Jul 1 - 8:30 PM

The Colorado Avalanche made a new long-term contract offer to Tyson Barrie over the weekend.

Barrie is set to become a restricted free agent on July 1st and there's been rumblings that he and the Avalanche don't see eye-to-eye on his overall value. "We presented a long-term proposal, and we’ll see where that goes," GM Joe Sakic said. "If not anywhere, he’s going to go to arbitration." The 24-year-old had 13 goals, 49 points and a minus-16 rating in 78 games this season.

Tyson Barrie isn't on the trade market, per Avalanche GM Joe Sakic.

Barrie is scheduled to become a restricted free agent this summer and should get a big raise from his previous $2.6 million cap hit. Sakic's hope is to sign Barrie to a long-term deal, but if it comes down to it, he's willing to let the arbitration process decide his 2016-17 salary.
