The 20-year-old forward likely was hurt when he was hit hard by the San Jose Sharks' Brad Stuart late in the first period of the Avalanche's game Saturday. Landeskog was skating through the neutral zone when Stuart stepped into him.
Landeskog returned to the game early in the second period and played 16:23, just two minutes below his season average.
In four games this season, Landeskog has one goal. As a rookie last season, he had 22 goals and 52 points while playing all 82 games.
He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
