Former Avalanche player Curtis Leschyshyn was honored by the Avalanche Alumni Association this evening prior to the Avs’ game against the New York Rangers.
Leschyshyn posted 141 points (34g/107a) in 522 contests with the Avalanche organization and was a member of Colorado’s 1996 Stanley Cup championship team. The ceremony included a highlight video and team-presented painting by renowned artist Stephen Holland. All fans in attendance witnessed a ceremonial puck drop by Leschyshyn and received a replica copy of the painting.
The next Avalanche Alumni Night will be Feb. 6 against the Edmonton Oilers when former forward Mike Ricci’s career will be highlighted.
