DENVER — The Colorado Avalanche will celebrate the organization’s 25th anniversary season in Denver during the upcoming 2020-21 season.

As part of the anniversary, the Avalanche will wear a special “25th” patch on its jerseys. The team will also have several jersey modifications throughout the season, including the Adidas Reverse Retro sweater announced Monday.

The Avalanche said Tuesday the "celebration will recognize the rich history of the Avalanche franchise and look forward to the bright future of the club by paying tribute to its Quebec Nordiques roots, celebrating two-and-a-half decades of community involvement, thanking the Avalanche’s faithful fans, remembering players of both past and present, championing the growth of hockey in the region and looking toward the next 25 seasons."

The Avalanche said the team will be switching to new equipment colors to match the primary colors already included in the Avalanche’s home, away and alternate jerseys.

Merchandise commemorating the 25th season will also be available for purchase.

More details of the Avalanche’s 25th anniversary celebration will be announced when the 2020-21 NHL season schedule is released at a later date.
