The Colorado Avalanche announced today the date and location for the club’s annual Burgundy/White intra-squad scrimmage.

A yearly prize for fans of the Avalanche and their prospects, the Burgundy/White game pits half of the team against the other half. Every player and goaltender is showcased and it is the last chance to see many of the players for the rest of the season as most prospects are sent back to their respective clubs the next day.

It is also the unofficial kickoff to hockey season, as preseason starts two days later with a home game against the Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings.

This year’s Burgundy/White extravaganza will take place at 6:30 pm on Monday, September 24th at the Air Force Academy’s Cadet Ice Arena outside of Colorado Springs, CO. The match is typically the official end to training camp and, in the past has occurred the monday after camp. While the Avalanche have yet to announce the dates of training camp, expect them to be the 22nd and 23rd of September.

Tickets for the event go on sale tomorrow, August 3rd, and are available online or over the phone at 800-666-USAF (8723).
