Booking Colorado Avalanche Player Appearances
The Colorado Avalanche are a National Hockey League team in the Northwest Division of the Western Conference, based in Denver, Colorado and playing home games at Pepsi Center. The team was established in 1972, initially as the Quebec Nordiques and one of the World Hockey Associations’ original teams. They spent their first 23 years in Quebec City, the capital of province of Quebec in Canada, before relocating to Denver in 1995. During their 17 seasons in Colorado they’ve won the Stanley Cup twice; the first season they moved to the Mile High City in 1995-1996, and again in 2000-2001.
The Avalanche were the first team in history to win the Stanley Cup their first season after a relocation, and were just the second team to win a championship their first season after a relocation in all of the four major North American sports leagues. The NFL’s Washington Redskins were the first. In 1995 the team was coached by Marc Crawford and led by players that included the team captain, Joe Sakic, as well as forward Peter Forsberg, defenseman Adam Foote and goalie Patrick Roy, who strengthened the team with his arrival that season. Just five years later, the team reached the pinnacle of success again with many of the same players from the 1995-1996 team, including Roy, Sakic, Forsberg and Foote, as well as Ray Bourque and Rob Blake who made major contributions to the team’s defense. Today, the Avalanche are headed by Coach Joe Sacco and led by Ryan O’Reilly, Matt Duchene and Semyon Varlamov.
