'The Avalanche' revealed as 22nd NHL Guardian
The Avalanche

(Click image to enlarge)

The Avalanche has a problem with authority and hates being told what to do. Denver was originally a frontier town populated by gamblers and miners and as a result, the Avalanche has a deep-rooted gambler mentality. He's willing to take chances that most of the other Guardians wouldn't dare, not because he actually believes that he can accomplish the act in question, but simply because he wants to see if it's possible.

The Avalanche is frozen, more specifically; he's a giant piece of walking frozen rocky earth. He takes this form as a direct result of Denver's location at the base of the Rocky Mountains.  To keep him frozen, the Avalanche has a cryogenic titanium suit and has the ability to freeze anything he touches.  He has the super ability of cryokinesis, which allows him to control the frozen environment around him and he has the ability to induce an actual avalanche whenever he chooses, provided of course that conditions allow for it.
Quote of the Day

The old saying in hockey is 'weather the storm.' I put the notion in their heads that we don't want to weather the storm, we want to push just as hard and matched their work ethic. I thought our guys exceeded that in the first period.
