The Colorado Avalanche are among oddsmakers' projected division winners for the 2019-20 season.

Colorado is the favorite to come out on top in the ultracompetitive Central Division following a busy summer. The team acquired Nazem Kadri and Andre Burakovsky in separate trades and signed free agent Joonas Donskoi, among other forwards, to reinforce an already potent offense.

Oddsmakers favor the Washington Capitals, Tampa Bay Lightning, and Vegas Golden Knights to claim the NHL's other divisional crowns.

Below are the odds for all 31 teams.

Avalanche lock up Girard with 7-year extension reportedly worth $35M.
The Colorado Avalanche have signed defenseman Samuel Girard to a seven-year contract extension, the team announced Wednesday. The deal comes with an average annual value of $5 million, according to the Denver Post's Mike Chambers. Girard has one more year remaining on his entry-level contract. The extension will kick in for the 2020-21 season and keep him in Colorado through the 2026-27 campaign. Girard was acquired by the Avs in the three-team trade in November 2017 that sent Matt Duchene to the Ottawa Senators and Kyle Turris to the Nashville Predators. He was a second-round pick by the Preds in 2016. The 21-year-old tallied 27 points in 82 games last season.
