About the Colorado Avalanche Hockey Team

The Colorado Avalanche are a National Hockey League Team (NHL) that plays their home games at the Pepsi Center In Denver, CO. They play in the Central division of the Western Conference. Other NHL teams in the same division include the Chicago Blackhawks, Dallas StarsMinnesota WildWinnipeg JetsNashville Predators, and the St. Louis Blues.

The Colorado Avalanche first joined the NHL as the Quebec Nordiques in 1979. Before that, the Nordiques played in the World Hockey Association (WHL). After years of talks about merging the WHL with the NHL because the WHL was facing financial hardship and declining fan interest, the NHL finally agreed to a merger in 1979 with the WHL, who only had 6 teams remaining. The NHL agreed to take on 4 of the 6 teams as expansion franchises, and along with the Quebec Nordiques came the Winnipeg Jets, Edmonton Oilers, and Hartford Whalers (now the Carolina Hurricanes). 

The Nordiques would continue to play as an NHL franchise through the end of the 1994-95 hockey season. During that time they would make it to the Stanley Cup Playoffs 9 times but were never able to make it to the Finals let alone win a Stanley Cup Championship. At the time, NHL teams that were located in Canada were having a very tough time adjusting to the rising NHL player's salaries and the weakening Canadian Dollar. In addition, the franchise, along with the whole city was operated in the french languish, which made it very hard to market to the predominantly English-speaking NHL. 

After the 1994-95 season, the Nordiques were sold to a Denver. CO investment group who would ultimately relocate them to the United States in Denver, Colorado. The new ownership would also change their name to what we now know as the Colorado Avalanche.

Colorado Avalanche have immediate success in NHL

The 1995-96 season was the first year for the Colorado Avalanche in the NHL. The city of Denver, along with most of the residents of Colorado were already happy to have an NHL franchise in their state, but the team made it even easier to attract even more new fans by having immediate success. The team went on to win the Pacific Division with a 47-25-19 record and make the playoffs. They won all 3 Western Conference playoff matchups, defeating the Vancouver Cunucks, Chicago Blackhawks, and Detroit Red Wings to win a trip to the Stanley Cup Finals.

The 1995-96 Stanley Cup Finals stage was set for the Avalanche to play the Florida Panthers in a best of 7 series. Colorado would only need 4 of those games as they went on to sweep the Panthers 4-0 and win the Stanley Cup, making it the first team to win a championship in any major sport in the city of Denver.

More Playoff and Stanley Cup Appearances

Since that first unforgettable year that the Colorado Avalanche were an NHL franchise, they have gone on to make the playoffs 16 times, and the Stanley Cup Finals 2 times, winning in both appearances, the 1995-96 season and the 2000-01 season.

 

Going to a Colorado Avalanche Hockey Game

If you are making your way to Pepsi Center in Denver, CO to see a Colorado Avalanche hockey game, there are some things that you should know to prepare yourself for your visit. 

    1. Arrive early: For Colorado Avalanche hockey games, the Pepsi Center opens its gates 60 minutes prior to puck drop. Get there early to avoid late-arriving crowds.
    2. Dress Warm. This is a Colorado Avalanche hockey game that you will be attending and it could get quite cold. It is better to have an extra sweatshirt and not need it than to need a sweatshirt and not have one.
    3. Do not try to get up during a play: If you need to go to the restroom, or you are getting up for concessions, wait until play has stopped. Nothing irritates other Colorado Avalanche hockey fans more than having to get up for someone trying to pass by their seats when play is in action.
    4. The Pepsi Center scoreboard: Do enjoy the Pepsi Center Scoreboard. It is one of the best in the league.
    5. Share your Colorado Avalanche game experience: Share Pics and videos on our Instagram page. #closeseats
