Avalanche’s Heartfelt Tribute for Josh Manson Mother
On November 7, 2023, a touching and heartfelt tribute unfolded within the Colorado Avalanche team.

The idea to create these meaningful shirts was initiated by Ryan Johansen, who approached Manson for his approval.
Lana Manson played a pivotal role in her son’s journey to the NHL. Hence, Josh emphasized the profound significance of this gesture, and he felt a deep appreciation for Ryan’s heartfelt acknowledgment of his situation.
