The NHL has announced the cancellation of all preseason games up to September 30. This means that the previously scheduled game at home against the Los Angeles Kings, the game in the Honda Center against the Anaheim Ducks, and Frozen Fury XV. The Avalanche have also decided personally to cancel the Burgundy and White game.
The really big disappointments to come out of this are the cancellations of Frozen Fury XV, an annual game played in Las Vegas, and the Burgundy and White Game, an annual intramural squad scrimmage open to the fans. Each of these novelty events is always eagerly anticipated by fans and players alike.
By cancelling these games, the NHL has handed us our first loss of the 2012-2013 season. Hopefully we won’t face too many more.
