The Colorado Avalanche came to the NHL from the WHA. They had their fair share of victories in the WHA, having won two division titles and an Avco World Trophy in 1977. After they joined the NHL they won a further two trophies while still in Quebec. Still nobody could have predicted the impact they would make in the NHL after they relocated to Denver in 1995. In the very first season that they played in after being named the Colorado Avalanche, the team won the Division Cup, went on to win the Conference Title and ended the season by sweeping the Florida Panthers in the Finals to lift the Stanley Cup. This made them the first team to win the Stanley Cup after being relocated to a new place.
In the seasons that followed there was much more to come from the Avs; they dominated the Central Division by winning a further seven titles consecutively. The back to back eight division titles won by the Avalanche constitutes the longest ever streak in the NHL. They won another Stanley Cup and Conference crown in 2001.Get Colorado Avalanche American Airlines Center tickets and watch the team play at the home arena of the Dallas Stars.
