As someone who wants to cheer for the Avs but knows nothing about them, what are 5 things you need to know about the Colorado Avalanche? #GoAvs???

1. We moved to Colorado in 1995 and won the Stanley Cup in our first season here!

2. We also won the Stanley Cup in 2001. This is especially memorable because Ray Bourque finally, finally won the Cup (and it was so, so deserved).

3. Joe Sakic, our current EVP & GM, holds our franchise records for most career games played (1,378), most goals (625), most power play goals (205), most short-handed goals (32), most game-winning goals (86), most assists (1,016), most points (1,641) and most 30-goal seasons (9).

4. We have had four Captains since moving to Colorado: Joe Sakic, Adam Foote, Milan Hejduk and Gabriel Landeskog.

5. Being involved in the COlorado community is very important to use. Every season, we host a Charity Brunch & Fashion Show for kids in the hospital.
