Avalanche Burgundy\/White Game
The Colorado Avalanche Hockey Club announced today that it will hold its annual “Burgundy/White Game” at Cadet Ice Arena on the grounds of the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo., on September 22 at 6:00 p.m. This game marks the second straight season that the Air Force Academy has played host to the event.

The annual Burgundy/White Game features all Avalanche players playing in a three-period, intra-squad scrimmage. Fans in attendance will also have the opportunity to watch a shootout at the end of regulation regardless of the score.

The previous eight Burgundy/White games have generated in excess of $450,000 for various charitable causes throughout Colorado. Proceeds from this year’s game will benefit military families and initiatives of the Colorado Avalanche Youth Hockey program.

“We’re pleased to be working again this season with the Air Force Academy for a tremendous cause,” said Avalanche Assistant General Manager Greg Sherman.  “This game was a huge success last year and we’re expecting another great turnout from our fans in the area.”

Tickets for the game go on sale beginning August 18, at 9:00 a.m. and are available for purchase through the Air Force Academy box office. Prices range from $12-20 for the game. For more information, please contact the Air Force Academy box office at 800-666-USAF (8723) or 719-472-1895 or online at www.GoAirForceFalcons.com.
