Colorado Avalanche Betting Stats
The Colorado Avalanche has been one of the NHL’s most successful franchises despite being relatively young. Initially starting as the Quebec Nordiques in the World Hockey Association (WHA), the team relocated to Colorado and promptly became a powerhouse. Joe Sakic leads the Avalanche’s team stats but the franchise has had plenty of Hall of Famers.
Due to their status and excellent management, Colorado is usually a favorite on the NHL odds. This team has had multiple dynasties and is usually a playoff contender. Playing in Denver, Colorado also has a unique home-ice advantage, which adds to their mystique as a hockey team.

Colorado Avalanche Stats & History
Before moving to Colorado, the Nordiques were already a formidable franchise. This team would win an Avco World Trophy in the WHA before entering the NHL. Quebec would struggle mightily, leading to three consecutive first overall picks. They used the picks to take Mats Sundin, Owen Nolan, and Eric Lindros.
The Lindros pick would turn into one of the NHL’s most famous deals. When he declined to play for Quebec, the Nordiques traded him to the Flyers for a package that included two first-round picks, $15 million, and several players with Peter Forsberg.
The trade turned the Nordiques from an also-ran into a Stanley Cup contender overnight. And following the lockout-shortened 1994-95 season, the Nordiques would be relocated to Colorado after COMSAT, a Denver-based group, purchased the team.
In the 1995-96 season, the team’s first season as the Colorado Avalanche, they would go all the way and win the Stanley Cup. The likes of Sakic, Forsberg, and recently acquired star goaltender Patrick Roy made the team a perennial title threat. They would lead most of the Colorado Avalanche team stats as of 2022.
Colorado would frequently make deep playoff runs and would form a heated rivalry against teams like the Detroit Red Wings. The franchise would win a second Stanley Cup during the 2000-01 season and stay competitive even as star players started to depart.
Sakic would stay with the Avalanche until he retired in 2009. Colorado would then enter a rebuild as the team would be one of the worst in the NHL. The Avalanche would miss the playoffs in six of the seven seasons between 2010-11 to 2016-17.
However, the rebuild meant Colorado was able to accumulate promising young talent. Nathan MacKinnon, Gabriel Landeskog, and Cale Makar formed the nucleus of another contender that would capture a third Stanley Cup in 2021-22.
As long as Colorado can keep its core together, it should keep dominating the NHL as it did in its early years in the league.Follow us on Twitter
