The 2013–14 Colorado Avalanche season was the 35th season for the National Hockey League franchise that was established on June 22, 1979,[1] and 19th season since the franchise relocated to Colorado to start the 1995–96 NHL season.

Off-season[edit]

On May 23, 2013, the Avalanche named former goalie Patrick Roy as their new head coach and vice president of hockey operations.[2]

Regular season[edit]

On October 30, 2013, goaltender Semyon Varlamov turned himself into Denver police on charges of kidnapping and assault.[3][4] The charges were later dismissed.[5]

Four players were chosen to represent their country at the 2014 Winter Olympics: Matt Duchene (Canada), Gabriel Landeskog (Sweden), Paul Stastny (United States), and Semyon Varlamov (Russia).[6]
