DENVER – The Colorado Avalanche officially reached the impressive milestone of 500 sellouts during Saturday night's game against the Detroit Red Wings at Pepsi Center ... Team representatives presented the 500th fan that entered Pepsi Center with a special autographed jersey, commemorating tonight’s achievement.

“Reaching the plateau of 500 sellouts is something that everyone in our organization and our fans should really be proud of,” said Avalanche President Pierre Lacroix.

“This speaks to the incredible strength of this city as a hockey market and to the unique devotion of Avalanche fans,” said Kroenke Sports Enterprises Executive Vice President Paul Andrews.

The Avalanche has sold out 500 of 515 (97%) total home games (including playoffs) since moving to Denver in 1995. Included in this stretch was a 487 consecutive-game sellout streak which ran from November 9, 1995 to October 14, 2006. The Avalanche sold out four games prior to the streak starting and nine games since it ended. Arena capacity for hockey was 16,061 at McNichols Arena (1995-1999) and 18,007 at Pepsi Center (1999-2007).
