The Colorado Avalanche Hockey Club will hold its annual Burgundy/White Game this Sunday, Sept. 25, at Magness Arena on the campus of the University of Denver. Puck drop is scheduled for 3 p.m.
The Burgundy/White Game features Avalanche players competing in a three-period, intrasquad scrimmage.
DU will host the event for the third consecutive year and for the seventh time overall, more than any other location. Magness Arena was also the site of the contest in 2002, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2014 and 2015.
The Air Force Academy has hosted the Burgundy/White Game on five occasions (2007-09, 2011, 2013). The first three contests were played at the World Arena in Colorado Springs (1998-2000), while the 2010 game was held at 1STBANK Center in Broomfield, Colo.
Tickets vary in price from $10-25 and are currently available online through the University of Denver Athletic Department’s website.
A portion of this year’s event proceeds will benefit the S.A.V.E. program through DU Athletics and Recreation that provides financial assistance in youth recreation programs at the Ritchie Center.
