The Avalanche were supposed to play in Finland in late 2020, but the pandemic nixed that. Today, the NHL announced a new schedule for international competition in Tampere, Finland this November, that will have the Avs play the Columbus Blue Jackets.
The games are slated for Nov. 4 and 5.

I’ve never been to Finland. I was supposed to in 2001, but Sept. 11 nixed that. I hope to be there for these games.
