The Official Site of the Colorado Avalanche
The 3 Stars of the Game for every Colorado Avalanche home contest at Pepsi Center are chosen by the organization's Coach of the Game who represents a local association in the state of Colorado. The coaches are selected by their peers for exemplifying their leadership on and off the ice, perseverance through a hardship or for doing great things to grow the game of hockey in the state. 
These coaches receive four tickets to an Avalanche game, in-game recognition and the opportunity to select the 3 Stars of the Game.
