The Colorado Avalanche were incepted in 1972 as members of the World Hockey Association. They were known as the the Quebec Nordiques back then. It was in the year 1995 that the franchise got relocated to Denver and hence the name was changed to the Colorado Avalanche. That has remained the case ever since.
The Avalanche have lifted the Stanley Cup not once but twice. It doesn’t get any bigger than winning the most prestigious title in the NHL and they have managed to pull it off twice.
They won their first ever Stanley Cup at the end of the 1995-1996 season which was also Denver’s first major sports championship. They defeated the Florida Panthers 4-0 and became the first ever NHL team to have won the Stanley Cup in the same year it was relocated. That was quite an achievement for a team in a new city.
2001 was the year when they won their second Stanley Cup by triumphing over the New Jersey Devils. They overcame the Devils by a 4-3 score to become NHL’s team to beat for the second time in their history.
