“All The Small Things” became the unofficial anthem of the Avalanche during their run to the 2022 Stanley Cup.

And the party isn’t over yet. Co-lead vocalist of Blink-182, Mark Hoppus, will be at Ball Arena tonight with Avs fans and will lead a sing-along of the hit song, according to TNT.

Blink-182 announced on Tuesday they’re getting back together for another tour, and this only adds to the theory the Avs helped reunite the band. Hoppus and the gang will also play in Denver, at Ball Arena, next summer.

There are loads of videos on the Internet of Avalanche fans singing the iconic song, but my personal favorite is at the Stanley Cup parade this past summer. 500,000 folks gathered in downtown Denver to honor the Avs and belt the song at the top of their lungs.

The Avalanche begin their title defense tonight against the Blackhawks, looking to repeat as champions. With Hoppus in the house, an already electric atmosphere should be even crazier.
