The Avalanche honored the architect of their two Stanley Cups, former team president and general manager Pierre Lacroix on Saturday at Ball Arena. Aarif shares his experience of covering the banner-raising ceremony, talking to former Avs legends Peter Forsberg and Adam Foote, and how Lacroix has shaped the way the organization is still run today. The guys then break down the 5-3 loss to St. Louis and the adversity the team is currently enduring. The show ends with a look ahead to Colorado’s first road trip of the season. All that and more on this edition of Hockey Mountain High: Your go-to Avalanche Podcast.
