Colorado Avalanche defenseman Kyle Quincey and center Paul Stastny
today unveiled the team’s new third jersey, which will debut this Saturday, Nov. 14, against the Vancouver Canucks at Pepsi Center (8:00 p.m.). The Avalanche will wear the third sweater on 12 occasions throughout the 2009-10 season.
The third jersey design is a collaboration of ideas from the Colorado Avalanche (including Kroenke Sports Enterprises Creative Imaging), the National Hockey League and Reebok. The third jersey has a predominately blue color scheme with a diagonal COLORADO type, laces at the neckline and stripes on the sleeves. Two rounds of sweater prototypes were tested and ran on ice before the final version was made.
Third jerseys will be on sale exclusively at Altitude Authentics in the Pepsi Center and through mail orders for five days starting on Nov. 14. Altitude Authentics will have the largest line of pre-made player jerseys in adult sizes, with numerous players to choose from. Three pre-made player jerseys will be available in youth sizes and jerseys may also be personalized within 3-4 weeks. Store and mail order hours will be extended over the weekend. Please call 303-405-1304 for store hours and 1-888-287-6847 for mail order hours.
