The 22-year Duchene is coming off a season in which he dished out a team-leading 26 assists and tied for the squad's top spot in scoring with 43 points.

Avalanche executive vice president of hockey operations Joe Sakic said on Thursday that Duchene ``represents the identity we want the Avalanche to be.''

The flashy forward was the No. 3 pick in the 2009 draft by the Avalanche, a team Duchene rooted for as a kid. He has been among the club's top-three scorers in three of his four seasons with Colorado.

``I appreciate the organization believing in me for the long-term future,'' Duchene said.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Avalanche are currently 50/1 to win the 2014 Stanley Cup. The Penguins remain favored at 13/2, while the Blackhawks are 7/1 and the Bruins are 10/1.
