Sunday Long Read: Landeskog a 'born leader'

Sunday, 12.21.2014 / 3:00 AM / Sunday Long Read

Adam Kimelman - Deputy Managing Editor

Tony Landeskog still has the story saved on his computer, the one he read over and over with his son, Gabriel:

"What it takes to be an NHL captain."

"We just printed that out and read through it," Tony told "It was what personality is important to be a captain."

"Take heart and the ability to be heartless," was the lead to the story by longtime hockey writer Alan Adams. "Add experience and the savvy to get a message across. Mix in desire and the wherewithal to instill that same desire in others. And blend in a heaping helping of leadership."

Gabriel Landeskog was 12 years old when that article was published, but the qualities Adams described are evident today in Landeskog, now a 22-year-old in his third season as captain of the Colorado Avalanche.

For those who know Landeskog best, it's not surprising he is the captain of an NHL team. That it happened after his first season raised a few eyebrows. But seeing a "C" on the front of his jersey is about as normal as seeing his name on the back of it.

VANCOUVER -- Vancouver Canucks forward Jannik Hansen left the game Saturday after collapsing briefly on the bench shortly after taking a hit against the Calgary Flames.

He was taken to a hospital for further evaluation.

Hansen was conscious and on his feet moments after collapsing early in the second period and walked to the locker room with help from the medical staff.

"He’s at the hospital but everything is checking out," Canucks coach Willie Desjardins said after a 3-2 overtime win at Rogers Arena. "It's concerning. He seemed like he couldn't get his breath there. He kind of went down. When that happens it's not usual, so you're concerned. But everything's checked out at the hospital and everything is fine.”

Quote of the Day

I was going nuts and I saw [Subban], he was going crazy, and the ref had no idea where to go. [Subban] was skating to me, and I was skating to him and the ref was right in between us and I don't know, I kind of hit him pretty hard, I thought, but those were some emotions and I'm pretty sure he understands that.
