Landeskog Takes Part In Sled Hockey Clinic

by Staff Writer / Colorado Avalanche

The Colorado Avalanche and Detroit Red Wings won't be the last teams to play on the ice rink at Coors Field in Denver.

The Avalanche and Red Wings will play their 2016 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series game Feb. 27 (8 p.m. ET; NBC, SN, TVA Sports 2).

On Feb. 28, the Colorado Warriors and Colorado Avalanche sled hockey teams will play outside.

Avalanche captain Gabriel Landeskog will be on the ice for the Stadium Series game. But he got a taste of what the sled hockey game will be like Feb. 8 during a sled hockey clinic at Ice Ranch in Littleton, Colo., for kids ages 5-16 from the Colorado Sled Hockey Team.

The Avalanche have been affiliated with Colorado Sled Hockey since arriving in Denver. In 1995 they became the first sled hockey team in the United States to wear the colors of their local NHL team. Currently, the Colorado Adaptive Sports Foundation offers sled hockey programs for youths, adults and members of Wounded Warriors.

There will be a number of other games and activities on the ice at Coors Field. Among them is the Stadium Series alumni game Feb. 26, which will feature Red Wings alums Steve Yzerman, Nicklas Lidstrom and others playing against Avalanche alums, including Joe Sakic and Peter Forsberg; the Gold Pan Rivalry game between Colorado College and the University of Denver on Feb. 20.
