Official Colorado Avalanche Trivia Thread!



Well, it's the summer and I know I'm not alone in saying I miss hockey. In order to pass the time I thought it would be enjoyable to have a trivia thread! Plus, I generally enjoy useless hockey facts.

Here are some rules:
  • Must be questions related to the Avalanche hockey team in some way
  • Only those who correctly answered the previous question can ask a new one (asker to verify)
  • NO LOOKING UP THE ANSWERS!
I know it's impossible to enforce that third rule, but this will be more fun if people don't Google every question. If you don't know it, you might as well make a wild guess. I know we can all trust each other

Anyways, I'll start with the first question:

Who scored the first ever goal wearing the current Colorado Avalanche third jersey (aka the blueberry)?

If someone gives me the answer I'm looking for, I'll let them know and then they can ask their own head-scratcher. And mods, I'm usually reluctant to start threads so if I'm doing anything wrong please let me know.
Let the games begin!

Another clue: In case anyone didn't know, the thirds were introduced early in the 09/10 season

Edit: not EJ

You can guess as much as you want, and I'll keep giving hints. Not Liles.

This player is a forward.

OK.

What player from Saskatchewan who has played for the avs has the most career points?
(not points with just avs but for every team to be clear)

I can't answer this because I googled who is from Saskatchewan who was an Avs player and the answer is quite obvious once you see the names. From what I can tell only 3-4 Avs players past/current are from Saskatchewan.

Over 1000 points? My guess is someone who didn't spend much time with Colorado. Andrechuk? (Spelling?)

Ah, I know those stats... That would be Theo Fleury, I believe.

Alright, assuming I go next... If anyone can remember off the top of their head, who were the two Avalanche assistant coaches in the 97-98 season?
