Burgundy\/White Game Set For Sept. 16
The Colorado Avalanche will hold its annual Burgundy/White Game at Cadet Ice Arena on the grounds of the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo., on Wednesday, Sept. 16, at 6:30 p.m.  This marks the third straight year that the Air Force Academy has hosted the event.

The Burgundy/White Game features all Avalanche players competing 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.

Proceeds from this year’s game will once again benefit military families and initiatives of The Home Front Cares, as well as the Colorado Avalanche Youth Hockey program. The previous nine Burgundy/White games have generated in excess of $475,000 for various charitable causes throughout Colorado.

“The Burgundy/White Game is a unique event for Avalanche fans to not only see all the players in action but also support an outstanding cause,” said Avalanche General Manager Greg Sherman.  “We are excited to be working with the Air Force Academy for the third straight year and are expecting another great turnout from our fans.”

Tickets for the game go on sale this Saturday, Aug. 15, at 9:00 a.m. through Air Force’s official website,  Phone sales begin Monday, Aug. 17, at 9:00 a.m. by calling 800-666-USAF (8723).  Prices range from $10 for military personnel to $20 for the general public.  For more information, please contact the Air Force Academy box office at 800-666-USAF (8723) or visit
