The team known today as the Colorado Avalanche was actually founded outside the United States and outside the National Hockey League itself. The franchise began playing professional in Quebec in 1972 under the Nordiques name, where it was a part of the World Hockey Association. The WHA eventually merged with the NHL in 1977 and the Nordiques would continue playing in Quebec until 1995. That year, they moved to Colorado in order to combat declining home attendance and two decades of either unsuccessful or losing seasons. As it turns out, the team's move to Colorado paid off. Its first season in Denver saw the Avalanche win not only its first division championship, but also its first conference championship and Stanley Cup.
Since that first season of unparalleled success for the franchise, things have been going relatively well. The team has since brought home another 7 division championships, another conference win, and a second Stanley Cup. Fans all across the country cheer on this Colorado-based team, which has the distinction of being the only Central Division franchise not located in the Central time zone. FansEdge.com has all the merchandise fans need to keep their spirit alive throughout the regular season, the post-season, and into the off-season.
