With 246 career points, Makar needs just 13 points to surpass Adam Foote (259) for the third most by a defenseman in Avalanche and Nordiques history.

Re-writing History

When its all said and done, Makar will likely shatter most defensive records not just for the Avalanche, but also in the NHL.

Makar became the fastest defenseman in NHL history to reach the 200-point plateau. Doing so in just 195 games.

For Avalanche All-Time records, Makar became the highest Single Season scoring defenseman in team history, when he scored his 24th goal of the season. He would go on to score 28 goals that year.

His current 1.033 Points/Game places him third All-Time, behind Bobby Orr (1.393) and Paul Coffey (1.087).
