Report: Landeskog back on the ice

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

It was a big dream. [Messi] is probably the best athlete out there, so it's a big honor, for [Kuznetzov] as well. It's maybe a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet the best player in soccer right now. I'm a big Barcelona fan and Messi fan, so it's huge. You can take [Michael] Jordan, [Mark] Messier, [Wayne] Gretzky, those kinds of [people]. It's an honor to meet. It's nice to be in that position.
