Thursday night at Pepsi Center, the Colorado Avalanche honored Peter Forsberg for his recent induction to the Hall of Fame. At the 8-minute mark, CSN Washington came back from break to capture the entire Caps bench rising to its feet and slapping their sticks against the boards in an awesome salute.
Forsberg was joined by Nicole Nordin, their young son Lennox, and daughter Lily in the luxury suites.
Such a great moment.
Avs fans rose to their feet and gave him a standing ovation. Minus the guy in the Lemieux jersey, of course.
Meanwhile, Forsberg’s former teammate, Patrick Roy, now the bench boss of the Avs did some kind of weird lip exercise thing.
Lennox even pointed to the crowd. Oh man.
Forsberg had 885 points in an injury-shortened 708 game career, which included stints with the Avs, Flyers, and Predators.
