Colorado Avalanche


1995-96
When the team moved to Denver from Quebec City, it changed its colors to burgundy, steel blue, black and silver. The crest features the letter "A" in the shape of a mountain, with a puck sliding down in a similar manner as an avalanche.


1996-97
The crest increases in size and tilts slightly counterclockwise. Also, the font on the players' names changes slightly. Otherwise, the uniform remains the same.


1997-99
The numbers decrease in size by about 3/4 of an inch and the outlines become thicker.


1999-2001
The burgundy becomes a couple shades darker. Look at photos of the team in their dark jerseys from the 1998-99 and 1999-2000 seasons. The difference is that noticeable.


2001-07
Fresh off their second Stanley Cup title, the Avalanche introduce a third jersey, with the word "Colorado" slanted across the front of the jersey.


2007-09
With the NHL moving to the Reebok Edge uniform system, the Avalanche changed the striping on their jerseys, and the names shrink by 3/4 of an inch. Otherwise, the uniform remains the same.


2009-15
The Avalanche introduce a blue alternate jersey, featuring a straight nameplate. The word AVALANCHE appears in the rear collar.


2015-present
The Avalanche retire the yeti foot shoulder patch and replace it with a re-colored "C" from the Colorado state flag -- which was also prominently displayed on the logo of the state's former NHL franchise, the Colorado Rockies. The Avs also introduced a new alternate uniform that introduces navy blue into the team's color scheme. The alternate's crest also harkens back to the days of the Colorado Rockies.
