Soooooooo, Nathan MacKinnon posted this on Instagram.
This year is the Colorado Avalanche’s 25th season in Colorado, meaning that I also turn 25 soon. Getting old. There was a ton of speculation that with the anniversary that there might be a nod to their former selves. This has a surprising Philadelphia connection. You may or may not remember, but the Flyers traded two Stanley Cups to Quebec back in the 90’s. I mean sorry, The Flyers traded a bunch of assets for Eric Lindros. I love Lindros, my midget number was 88.
But we are talking about the Nordiques. These gloves are way to bright to be the Avalanche’s regular unis.
It could be an update to the awful jersey we saw at the Stadium Series, but I do not think so. I think this is a tease to a future reveal of Colorado Avalanche/ Quebec Nordiques Throw Back Jerseys.
Avs Twitter is exploding right now in excitement, or just a build up of disappointment.
We probably won’t hear more till closer to December, cause this stuff will sell good or bad.
