The Scouting Report
Compiling 44 points through the first 39 games of their inaugural season, the Cutthroats have established themselves as a force in the CHL's Berry Conference. Goalie Kent Patterson—a former fourth-round pick of the Colorado Avalanche—sparked the team in December en route to winning the league's Goaltender and Rookie of the Month honors. During that stretch, he went 6–1–1 and turned down 250 of 265 shots, putting him at an elite level alongside the league's top goalies and top teetotalers. Forward A.J. Gale leads the offense with 53 points, the second highest total in the league.
On April 10, 2012, the Central Hockey League announced the Denver Cutthroats as the league's newest member. A little more than six months later, on October 19, the team played its first game ever—a 4–3 overtime loss to the Missouri Mavericks. Despite the outcome, the game marked the return of hockey to Denver Coliseum, which hadn't been skated professionally since the IHL's Denver Rangers' 1988-89 season.
As an affiliate of the Colorado Avalanche, the Cutthroats—a name chosen in honor of Denver's state fish, the Greenback cutthroat trout— immediately developed a connection with local hockey fans. Fans get to share their support directly with The Stream, a place right outside the home team's locker room covered with inspirational messages and lasagna recipes inscribed on paper fish by the Cutthroat faithful.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
