Colorado Avalanche History

The Avalanche has a unique history that began in 1972. They were born as the Quebec Nordiques of the World Hockey Association and merged into the NHL in 1979. But after their inability to secure a new arena, the Nordiques moved to the metro Denver area in 1995. The Colorado Avalanche won the first major professional sports championship in Denver history with the 1996 Stanley Cup. They won their second Cup in 2001. During those early years, the Avs had a rivalry with the Detroit Red Wings, one of the nastiest in sports history. Players such as Ray Bourque, Jarome Iginla, Jari Kurri, Joe Sakic, Peter Forsberg, and Patrick Roy have lit up the Colorado marquee.

The Avalanche are the second NHL franchise to try and make a go of it in Colorado. In 1976 the Kansas City Scouts became the Colorado Rockies but never caught on. A losing team and small crowds doomed them from the start. They became the New Jersey Devils after the 1981-82 season.

For the past three seasons, the Colorado Avalanche have been favored to win the Stanley Cup championship. Colorado looked like the team to beat in the 2021 Stanley Cup Playoffs when they went up 2-0 against the Vegas Golden Knights in the second round. But Vegas stormed back to win the next four games and the series. Colorado was shattered after the defeat but did not blow everything up. The Avalanche management realizes that they have a loaded team. Colorado fans have responded with packed crowds at Ball Arena and the most enthusiasm since their initial Stanley Cup years.

The Avalanche management was rewarded in 2022 with a Stanley Cup. Their patience and wisdom paid off, and more glory is expected with a young team that is the most talented in the NHL.
