Report: Landeskog back at Avalanche practice

Colorado Avalanche captain Gabriel Landeskog was back at practice Tuesday, according to a report from Denver Post writer Adrian Dater.

Landeskog was wearing an orange jersey, likely signifying no contact.

Landeskog hasn't played since absorbing a hard hit from San Jose Sharks defenseman Brad Stuart in a Jan. 26 game. He has one goal in four games this season.

"It's great to have him out there with us right now," wing P.A. Parenteau told the newspaper. "Even at a practice, he brings a lot of energy to the team."

Landeskog did not speak to the media, per team injury policy.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
