Colorado Avalanche Entering the 2013 NHL season the Colorado Avalanche will look to improve from last year where they finished 3rd in the Northwest and were 7 points short of qualifying for the playoffs. Gabriel Landeskog, who was selected 2nd overall in the 2011 NHL Draft, was the Avs’ lead scorer, but finished with only 22 goals. Other scorers weren’t far behind but this should be a tell tale sign that the Avs will need to improve their scoring ability if they hope to contend in the division that features a Vancouver team that has won two Presidents’ Trophies two years in a row. Despite this, the Avs will be able to bounce back in the 2013 NHL season with help from Matt Duchene, P.A. Parenteau, and Paul Stansty. Duchene suffered an ankle injury that held him back but should return strong and Parenteu will be a great addition to the squad. Stansty has been one of the top two scorers on the Avalanche for years and his role on the Avs’ offense has also aided David Jones, who seems to play his best hockey when the two are on the same line. In addition to the already long list of talent the Avs have, last year they acquired Jamie McGinn, who would only need 2 games to become a scoring threat. The Avs’ blue line is also looking tough with Erik Johnson, a blossoming talent the Avs need, and Shane O’Brien, a tough enforcer and perfect partner for Johnson. Goaltender Jean-Sebastien Gigure put up a solid 2.27 GAA last season and the veteran is expected to put up the same kind of numbers this season.

The Colorado Avalanche are based in Denver, Colorado and play hockey in the Northwest Division of the Western Conference. The Avs were founded in 1972 as the Quebec Nordiques and was a member of the WHA. In the 1979 NHL-WHA merger, the Nordiques joined the NHL and following the 1994-95 season they were sold and relocated, becoming the Colorado Avalanche. The Avalanche would become a dominating force in the Rockies, winning the Stanley Cup their first season in Denver and again in 2000-01. They would go on to qualify for the playoffs each year for their first 10 seasons in Denver and win their division 8 years in a row. The Avs’ red-hot success would eventually cool off and in the 2007 they would miss the playoffs for the first time, ending their 10-year streak. The Avs have since worked to rebuild their team to its former glory. Some of the best players to play for the Avs include Joe Sakic, Patrick Roy, and Ray Bourque, all Hall of Famers. The Pepsi Center has been home to the Avalanche since 1999 and has been dubbed “The Can” by fans because of its association with the cola company. The Avalanches’ most heated rivalry is shared with Detroit Red Wings and matchups between the two are often some of the most intense in NHL history. The Avs also hold the NHL record for longest consecutive sell out games with 487 between 1995 and 2006.
