Colorado Avalanche Fashion Review: Red Carpet and 3rd Jersey

1 of 7

Well, never mind how the Colorado Avalanche looked in the final 15 minutes of the game. The players had pretty good game as they strolled the red carpet for the introduction to the team’s 20th anniversary season.

The event started at 3:00 pm before the season opener against the Minnesota Wild. Well, fans were asked to report to the Grand Atrium at Pepsi Center by 3:00 pm. In fact, Avalanche mascot Bernie didn’t even make his appearance until around 3:15 pm.

While it’s true the players didn’t even start their strolls until close to the 4:00 pm mark, it turned out the results were worth waiting for. All the players were very gracious in slapping fans’ hands as they made their way down the red carpet (though Jarome Iginla strayed to the other side just before he got to mine — boo.)

Not only that, though, these guys show what it means to them to have to wear suits on a pretty consistent basis. Some of them get really creative in their suit game while others keep it classic. Let’s look at some of the fashion highlights of yesterday’s red carpet stroll. At the end we’ll look at the debut of the Avalanche’s third jerseys.
