It seems that the Avalanche have made minor changes to their street kit.

Prospect Andrei Buyalsky, who the Avs drafted 92nd in the NHL draft two weeks ago, was seen showing off the new look on the University of Vermont campus.

Buyalsky, starting his freshman season with Vermont, wears a jersey that shows the organization has continued to move away from the color black in their uniforms. The number appears to be blue with a burgundy outline. The nameplate also appears to have a new burgundy outline that highlights the black.

Both the name and number were all black before the change.

Ahead of the 2020–21 season, the Avs made drastic changes to the home and street uniforms, dropping the black shorts, gloves and helmet. The team has slowly transitioned to a look that’s all burgundy and blue.

Many had questioned the new street uniforms at the time, saying the blue shorts and gloves didn’t match the jersey. These minor changes, modeled by Buyalsky, seem to have fixed this problem.

The Avs have yet to officially announce the changes.
