The Avs signed the reigning Hobey Baker Award victor Sunday, and he will join the team immediately for its series against the Calgary Flames.

With great skating ability, an outstanding two-way skill set and high hockey IQ, Makar is considered to be one of the purest blue line talents to come out of the college hockey ranks in some time.

Makar won the Hobey Baker award this season as the NCAA's top hockey player after scoring 16 goals and 33 assists over 41 games.
