The game between the Colorado Avalanche and Calgary Flames has been postponed due to inclement weather which has hit the Denver area.
"We have been in close consultation with the National Hockey League and the City of Denver and all parties realized that this was the best course of action given the current conditions," said Kroenke Sports Executive Vice President Paul Andrews. "The safety of our season ticket holders and all our fans and employees was the primary concern.
"The National Hockey League will announce a date for the rescheduled game in the near future and all tickets for tonight's game will be valid at that time," added Andrews.
Wednesday night's NBA game in Denver between the Nuggets and the Phoenix Suns was also postponed because of the storm.
For the second straight day the Denver area was motionless. City streets were empty, nothing moved at the airport but the thousands of stranded travelers, long stretches of highway were impassable, even the mail couldn't get through after a powerful blizzard dumped two feet of snow on the region.
