Entries in colorado avalanche (10)
This Winter Classic Weekend takes us to the Mile High City for an outdoor match-up between the Colorado Avalanche and the St. Louis Blues — only designer Mike Bell has the Avs sporting a Rockies-inspired uniform. The Rockies trace their lineage to today's New Jersey Devils. Not sure the Avalanche would be wild about that notion. The Blues sweater is pretty neat though. This obviously would no longer be an option for 2014, but maybe 2015?
If the Avalanche ever opt for a more traditional jersey design, Bastian Schmülling has just what they need right here. I think this is a fantastic look.
Today we get a pair of Colorado concepts from a pair of artists both named Justin. Justin Cox provides new home and road jerseys for the Avalanche — which I like a lot better than the team's existing set.
And Justin Wiltron offers an alternate jersey. Together, these three would make a really nice set.
Our Winter Classic Weekends series continues to be brought to you by the Brothers Waddell. Chance and Jake have designed "fauxback" jerseys for all 30 NHL teams and week by week you guys are deciding which teams to see next. Last Saturday, Adam R. selected the Avalanche and Devils.

Andrew Bourne continues his NHL makeover series today with a look at the Avalanche.
For the most part, Colorado's color scheme is right on the money. Their black, blue, burgundy, white and silver really remind me of Colorado. Cold and mountainous is the way to go. Having said that, I wanted to tweak those colors to give you more of a feel for the mountains and the snow.
Even though The Avalanche have the two best logos in the entire league, I decided to use them in the secondary role. The very modern look of the home and away jersey designs just didn't work with the rotated and angular A logo or the circular Sasquatch logo.
I also wanted to pay tribute to the Nordiques somehow in the third jersey. So, I took their simplistic style and added two stripes to symbolize, you guessed it, their two championships. The jersey is reminiscent of the Nordiques but still has a style that Colorado can call its own.
