Landeskog scratched with torso injury
Colorado Avalanche captain Gabriel Landeskog was scratched from Saturday's game against the Dallas Stars at American Airlines Center with what was termed by the Avs as a torso injury.

DALLAS -- Colorado Avalanche captain Gabriel Landeskog was scratched from Saturday's game against the Dallas Stars at American Airlines Center with what was termed by the Avs as a torso injury.

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.

Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.

— Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen on the team's prospects at development camp
