The 2011–12 Colorado Avalanche season was the 40th overall season for the franchise, the 33rd since joining the NHL,[1] and 17th since relocating to Colorado.

The Avalanche failed to qualify for the Stanley Cup playoffs, and were seven points behind the 8th-place Kings.

Off-SeasonEdit

On June 16, 2011, the Avalanche promoted former player Adam Deadmarsh to assistant coach.[2] Deadmarsh will take Steve Konowalchuk's place behind the bench, as Konowalchuk has accepted the head coaching position for the Seattle Thunderbirds.

Captain Adam Foote retired.

Regular SeasonEdit

The Avalanche retired Peter Forsberg's #21 jersey on opening night, October 8.[3]

On November 14, the Avalanche named Milan Hejduk as the third captain in Avalanche history.[4]
