Avalanche may wear Nordiques jerseys in select games next season: report
The Colorado Avalanche are discussing the possibility of wearing Quebec Nordiques jerseys during certain games next season to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the team relocating.
"Next year is the team's 25th anniversary season. I think there is an opportunity," Declan Bolger, senior vice president and chief marketing officer for Kroenke Sports and Entertainment, which owns the Avalanche, told The Athletic. "We've talked about it, but the opportunity has not arose up to now. It's not the only thing we've talked about. We have talked about a lot of things."
Like I said, not too much in the news lately. I personally like when teams wear old jerseys like this. Then again, it’s the Avalanche, so I don’t really care too much one way or the other. I live in NJ, and if I were to get a Devils jersey, it would probably one of the “Christmas tree” ones that they recently brought back for a few games.
