As of the end of the 2008–09 NHL season — Regular Season data


Retired numbers :
  • 19 Joe Sakic, C, 1995-09, number to be retired on October 1, 2009.
  • 33 Patrick Roy, G, 1995–03, number retired October 28, 2003.
  • 77 Ray Bourque, D, 2000–01, number retired in 2001.
  • 99 Wayne Gretzky, C, number retired league wide February 6, 2001.
The numbers retired when the franchise was in Quebec - J. C. Tremblay's #3, Marc Tardif's #8, Michel Goulet's #16 and Peter Stastny's #26 - were entered back into circulation after the move to Colorado. Peter Statsny's #26 is currently being worn by his son Paul. On July 9, 2009, the Avalanche announced that they would retire Joe Sakic's #19 on opening night of the 2009–10 season. [89] Hall of Famers : Ray Bourque played in the NHL for 22 seasons with the Boston Bruins and was traded, by his request, to Colorado in 2000 so he could have a chance of winning the Stanley Cup before retiring. After falling in the Western Conference Finals in 2000, Bourque signed with the Avs for a second season. In a feat termed Mission 16W, the Avs were able to win the Stanley Cup in June 2001, thus allowing Bourque the championship he had been seeking for 23 seasons. [90]

Patrick Roy played from 1995 to 2003 in Colorado and won two Stanley Cups with the Colorado Avalanche. Roy retired with the most wins by a goaltender in NHL history with 551, though he has since been passed by Martin Brodeur. [91]

Both Bourque and Roy were inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame. The only other Avalanche player to be inducted is Jari Kurri who played the last season of his career with the franchise, yet his number hasn't been retired by the team, and his jersey does not hang from the rafters at Pepsi Center. [92]

Bryan Trottier, who was an assistant coach when the Avalanche won their second Stanley Cup in 2001, was inducted to the Hockey Hall of Fame as a player in 1997. [93]
