Report: Landeskog back on the ice

Gabriel Landeskog
Left Wing - COL
GOALS: 1 | ASST: 0 | PTS: 1
SOG: 15 | +/-: 3
The Denver Post is reporting that Gabriel Landeskog, out since sustaining a concussion Jan. 26, skated for the first time Friday.

The report states that the 20-year-old Colorado Avalanche captain skated for an unspecified length of time at the team's practice facility, with club medical personnel watching. Neither Landeskog nor the team would comment on where Landeskog is in his recovery.

It's unclear when Landeskog will skate again.

Landeskog was hit hard by the San Jose Sharks' Brad Stuart during a Jan. 26 game. Landeskog was able to return after missing a few shifts, but has yet to play again. He has one goal and a plus-3 rating in four games.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
