After four months of waiting and an uneventful offseason, it's time to begin the 15th season of Colorado Avalanche hockey. This Thursday, the Pepsi Center will host two championship teams. Not only are the reigning Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks in town, but the 1996 Colorado Avalanche are also reunited.
Beginning at 4:30pm, there will be a Red Carpet Gala event and dinner outside the Denver Chophouse for the entire roster from that championship team. Bring your favorite piece of memorabilia to 19th Street and Wynkoop and hopefully get an autograph from Claude Lemieux, Joe Sakic, Patrick Roy and your other favorite players from that memorable season.
