Colorado Avalanche forward Gabriel Landeskog has signed a contract with Swedish hockey club Djurgardens, according to a story on the team's website.

A Stockholm native, Landeskog grew up playing in the Djurgardens system and played there until the end of the 2008-09 season, when he left to join the Kitchener Rangers of the Ontario Hockey League.

Landeskog, the second pick of the 2011 NHL Draft, tied for the rookie scoring lead with 52 points and was second with 22 goals. He was named the winner of the Calder Trophy as NHL rookie of the year in June.

Quote of the Day

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.
