Avalanche Alumni Association

In conjunction with Pepsi Center’s 10-year anniversary, the Colorado Avalanche Hockey Club will launch its Alumni Association on Opening Night (Oct. 1) in a pre-game ceremony introducing Joe Sakic as the first of 10 honorees to be named throughout the 2009-10 season.

In addition to Sakic, nine other members of Colorado’s 1996 or 2001 Stanley Cup championship teams will be honored throughout the season, including Adam Deadmarsh, Alexei Gusarov, Valeri Kamensky, Mike Keane, Uwe Krupp, Claude Lemieux, Curtis Leschyshyn, Shjon Podein and Mike Ricci.

Each Avalanche Alumni game will include a pregame ceremonial puck drop by the honoree and will also feature a presentation of a painting by renowned artist Stephen Holland.

Fans attending an Avalanche Alumni game will receive a free, limited edition replica poster of the Stephen Holland painting presented to the honoree.


Date Opponent Alumni Honoree

Thursday, Oct. 1, 2009 San Jose Sharks Joe Sakic
Friday, Oct. 23, 2009 Carolina Hurricanes Alexei Gusarov
Friday, Nov. 6, 2009 Chicago Blackhawks Shjon Podein
Monday, Nov. 23, 2009 Philadelphia Flyers Uwe Krupp
Tuesday, Dec. 15, 2009 Washington Capitals Mike Keane
Saturday, Dec. 26, 2009 Dallas Stars Adam Deadmarsh
Saturday, Jan. 16, 2010 New Jersey Devils Claude Lemieux
Sunday, Jan. 31, 2010 New York Rangers Curtis Leschyshyn
Saturday, Feb. 6, 2010 Edmonton Oilers Mike Ricci
Monday, March 1, 2010 Detroit Red Wings Valeri Kamensky

So not only do we get a Joe Sakic mini-banner on opening night, we get a cool poster (picture at the link)

A bit surprised no Patrick Roy or Ray Bourque although here's hoping they are there for Joe on opening night.

Only games I know for sure I'll be going to other than opening night are Claude Lemieux (favorite Av ever) and Kamenskey (because I never miss and Avs/Wings Game) They should have done Lemieux against the Wings though.

Since half the crowd would be Red Wings fans, not sure it would look good to the higher ups when he is booed at the Pepsi Center.

If somebody finds a Deadmarsh poster lying around, please send it my way and I'll send you a jar of pickles in return.

Epic bump, but who have been the invites since these first ten players?
