Portland, Ore./New York -- adidas, the NHL® and the Colorado Avalanche today introduced the special-edition ADIZERO Authentic Pro NHL® jersey specifically designed for the 2020 Navy Federal Credit Union NHL Stadium Series™ outdoor game. Glimpsing into the future of hockey, the Avalanche's jersey draws inspiration from the Mile High State, and elevates the design into new heights, by looking to the Air Force Academy's Cadet Chapel and Colorado's blue skies, eminent landscape and renowned landmarks. Specially designed for viewing in a stadium setting, the jerseys are accented with larger-than-life cresting and striping.
