The National Hockey League released their 2010-11 television schedules this past Wednesday. The Colorado Avalanche will make five appearances on Versus hear in the US and nine on Canadian stations. As noted on Mile High Hockey, four of the five games on Versus will appear in the first seventeen games of the season. They will be playing no games on NBC this year. The Pittsburgh Penguins on the other hand will be seen on the network six times. If you are an Avs fan living outside of Colorado, you may want to consider NHL Center Ice, because you aren't going to see a whole lot of Avalanche without it.
