Today in Colorado Avalanche History




Happy 39th birthday to team captain Adam Foote. Drafted by the Nordiques in the 2nd round of the the 1989 draft, Foote has played in 1107 regular season NHL games - 920 with the Nordiques and Avalanche - and 170 postseason games (all with this franchise).

Foote's first NHL goal came on January 14th, 1992 against Mike Vernon and the Calgary Flames in a 5-3 loss. Other goal scorers for the Nordiques that night were Doug Smail and Greg Paslawski - two players who combined for 126 total games with Quebec. Goal scorers for the Flames were Craig Berube, Tomas Forslund, Sergei Makarov, Gary Suter and Carey Wilson.

Fun fact: Foote made his NHL debut on October 19th, 1991...one day before Joey Hishon was born.
