Colorado Avalanche helped bring smiles and holiday cheer to some very special children on Dec. 2 when the team made their 16th annual visit to Children’s Hospital Colorado. Avs players, coaches, mascot Bernie and Ice Girls visited patients’ rooms, distributed Bernie plush animals, signed autographs, took pictures with the kids and their families and, most importantly, talked with the kids to help brighten their day (Photo: Jack Dempsey).
