After the 2014-15 NHL season, the Colorado Avalanche retired their alternate “blueberry” jerseys.  But have no fear, the Avs will have a brand new alternate jersey for the upcoming year.

At the end of July, Icethetics gave fans a sneak peek at the brand new jerseys the Avalanche will be wearing this season. Though they didn’t get it quite right.

Now, in a blog post, Icethetics has revealed the Avalanche new jerseys as well as the Anaheim Ducks brand new threads. The Avs will likely officially reveal their brand new alternate jerseys at a later time.

These new jerseys are an obvious homage to Denver’s original NHL franchise, the Colorado Rockies, using a nearly identical logo, updated with current Avalanche colors. The jersey also features the Colorado state flag on the left shoulder.

These jerseys are just the beginning; the “stadium series”  jersey has yet to be released which means fans have a lot of excitement to look forward to in the upcoming months.
