2001 – Colorado Avalanche

Colorado 2001 Stanley Cup ring

The 2001 Stanley Cup Finals were played in the 108th year of the Stanley Cup, pitting the defending champion New Jersey Devils against the Colorado Avalanche. The Avalanche won the series in seven games, claiming their second Stanley Cup championship. This marked the only Stanley Cup championship for Avalanche defenseman Ray Bourque, who retired following the series. As of 2008, this is also the most recent time that the defending Stanley Cup Champions would return to the Finals for a consecutive year.

There are 2 photo versions of the ring circulating on the internet. It has been impossible so far to confirm which one is authentic. Here are the photos.

Here is a photo of another ring. According to my research, this ring was given to a member of the front office staff and it would make this an unofficial championship ring.

  1. The top Ring is a prototype that Josten’s made for Ray Borurque. The ring surfaced in a Leland’s Sports auction in 2006. The actual team ring is the David Aebischer one pictured above. That ring was made by Diamond Cutters International who also made the 1995 Devils, 1996 Avalanche, 1997 & 1998 Red Wings, 1999 Stars and 2000 Devils rings.
