Landeskog out tonight for Avalanche

The Denver Post is reporting the Colorado Avalanche will be without team captain Gabriel Landeskog for Monday's game against the Edmonton Oilers due to head and leg injuries.

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.

Quote of the Day

I'm very excited about what happened today. We've worked on this deal with Toronto for a month, or over a month. It got a little bit of legs on draft day, but it really heated up last night, and we were able to complete the deal today.
