Avalanche “reverse retro” jerseys have Quebec Nordiques flavor – The Denver Post

The Avalanche and the NHL’s other 30 teams revealed Adidas retro jerseys Monday, with Colorado choosing to go with a logo from the Quebec Nordiques, who relocated to Denver in 1995.

Fittingly, the Avs will begin their 25th anniversary season when next season begins.

The crest of the Avs’ new jersey features the iconic Nordiques igloo logo and the hem and each shoulder has the fleur-de-lis symbol, from Quebec’s provincial flag. Each jersey features “COL’ and ‘79” on the back neck—representing the year Quebec entered the NHL.
