The Colorado Avalanche players, coaches and staff made their annual visit to The Children's Hospital in Denver on Thursday afternoon.
Every December, the Avalanche visits the young patients at The Children's Hospital in an effort to lift their spirits during the holiday season.
This visit marked the 10th year of this Avalanche tradition. The players and coaches visited patient rooms, distributed Avalanche teddy bears, signed autographs, took pictures with the children and their families and, most importantly, talked with the kids to help brighten their day.
