The Avalanche will open its 2009-10 schedule with a home game Thursday, Oct. 1 against the San Jose Sharks at the Pepsi Center, the NHL said today.

That home opener will also serve as “Joe Sakic Night”, when the Avs will retire their longtime captain’s No. 19 in the rafters. Sakic will be the third Colorado player to have his number retired.

The Avs will play their first two games at home before playing their first road game, Oct. 8 at Nashville.
