Colorado Avalanche Uniform Poll: Which One’s the Best?


The Colorado Avalanche is not exactly known for the prettiest jerseys in the NHL. As opposed to every other team in the league, the Avs decided to rock the ugly pipes for at least a few more years. However, they did introduce new alternate jerseys — so, which one’s the best?

Colorado Avalanche Home Jersey

The Colorado Avalanche’s identity is burgundy and blue. The color choice for the home uniforms has therefore never been a question. Burgundy and blue, divided by interesting black and white pipes.

Basically ever since those jerseys were introduced, fans have wished to get back the jerseys the Avalanche wore during the first years in Denver. Interestingly, the jerseys Avalanche legends like Joe Sakic and Adam Foote once wore, were also burgundy and blue — divided by black and white pipes.

So, it must be the design after all, and the piping is just an element to blame for the misery. Poor pipes.

The team from Denver is the Avalanche. While other teams may not like the fact that the NHL demands every team to have a white uniform set, it is perfect for Colorado.

Unfortunately, the design is the exact same as the home jerseys. Some people like it, some don’t — I don’t — but at least the color scheme is perfect here. Whether those home and away jerseys get changed up anytime soon is unknown.

For now, they were changed up by removing the yeti foot, and a Colorado “C” is now used as the shoulder patch. In addition to that, the new uniforms have an anniversary logo on the chest. Perhaps the club is saving the big overhaul for when the league switches to Adidas.

The Avalanche moved away from the usual color scheme, using a navy blue as the primary color. Furthermore, the design was completely changed up and is unique in the league. Goodbye “blueberries”, hello… “Colorados”.

In loving memory of the state’s first NHL team, the Colorado Avalanche decided to pay tribute to the Colorado Rockies in their logo. A mountain with a Colorado state flag “C” in it is exactly what the Rockies once used. Personally, I love the design and colors, and can live with the logo, although the uniforms would likely look even better with the regular Avs logo.

Colorado Avalanche Stadium Series Jersey

Gabriel Landeskog was the one presenting the Avalanche’s first outdoor game jersey to the public at Coors Field. It is unknown if he was chosen because he’s the team’s captain or because he’s Colorado’s Next Top Model. Anyway, the jerseys are something.

The team is the Avalanche, Avalanche’s are white, and the Avalanche will be the first team to wear white at home again. That’s definitely happy news.

As to the design itself, well, it’s interesting. Maybe a tad boring to be honest, but there has been worse. The logo is only a Colorado “C” in Avs colors. Unfortunately, the designers went with the same super-sized numbers the LA Kings had on their white Stadium Series jerseys last season. Oh well.

So, which one is your favorite set? Let us know in the comments and don’t forget to vote in the poll!
