The Colorado Avalanche recognized Washington Capitals goaltender Darcy Kuemper and forward Nicolas Aube-Kubel during the first period of their game against the Caps at Ball Arena on Tuesday night.

During the first television timeout, the Avs shared a video montage honoring Kuemper and Aube-Kubel, both members of Colorado’s Stanley Cup championship last summer.

Kuemper, who backstopped the Avalanche to their first Stanley Cup in over two decades with a 10-4 record, .902 Save Percentage, 2.57 Goals-Against Average, and one shutout, signed with the Caps in free agency to a five-year deal, becoming the team’s de facto number one.

Aube-Kubel, whom the Caps acquired via the waiver wire, played 67 games in an Avalanche sweater last season, recording 11 Goals and 22 Points while recxording no points in 14 playoff games.
