Landeskog, who has 11 points (six goals, five assists) in 18 games this season, participated in the morning skate -- apparently with no issues -- before being scratched before the drop of the puck. He missed 11 games between Jan. 28 and Feb. 20 with head and leg injuries.
In his absence, David Jones returned to the ice for Colorado after being a healthy scratch for Wednesday's 4-3 win against Dallas at the Pepsi Center.
This is a big year for us in a lot of ways. You can see Garth and management really trying to find that solution to get us into the playoffs and consistently have that. The pressure is great. You have to enjoy it. It just means there's a great opportunity ahead of you.
