Throughout the season, the Colorado Avalanche donates game-worn jerseys with proceeds benefiting Kroenke Sports Charities. Now available is a special set of jerseys--white sweaters worn by each member of the Avalanche during away games in the team's final stretch of the regular season and throughout its second consecutive playoff appearance. The uniforms were donned from March 1, 2019, through May 8, 2019.
Kroenke Sports Charities works to fill the needs of the Colorado community through support of education and recreation initiatives for underserved children and families. Bidding begins at $250 per jersey, and the items are truly "game-worn."
Rips, tears, scuffs and even dried blood markup the used jerseys. The jerseys are the exact ones worn during scored goals, notched assists, strong hits, blocks and even some fights. With the auction, fans gain the opportunity not only to support community education, recreation and sports programs of Kroenke Sports Charities Signature Partners, but also to own an authentic item of Avalanche history.
During the time the white set of jerseys was worn, highlights included:
- Erik Johnson's 700th NHL game (March 1 at San Jose)
- Philipp Grubauer's career-high 44 saves in a single game (March 21 at Dallas)
- Nathan MacKinnon's 99th point of the season, the most by an Avalanche player since Joe Sakic generated 100 points in 2006-07 (April 6 at San Jose)
- J.T. Compher, Tyson Barrie and Tyson Jost scored their first-career playoff goals
- Colin Wilson's two tallies in a series-clinching game (R1G5, April 19 at Calgary)
