Landeskog was back in action on Saturday.
Not the Colorado Avalanche captain, but rather the 3-year-old gelding named for him, a horse co-owned by defenseman Erik Johnson.
Wearing No. 5, Landeskog finished in ninth place of the eighth race ahead of the 151st Belmont Stakes.
When "NHL on NBC" analyst Eddie Olczyk asked Johnson about the horse's name, he was straightforward about it.
"Gabe was kind of laughing about why we would name a fast horse after him," Johnson joked. "But he's a good looking horse. Gabe is praised by a lot of the ladies for his good looks, so we thought we would name this one after Gabe and he's been doing awesome."
Landeskog, the horse, trained by Doug O'Neil, won his debut race on March 31 and finished second in the Bachelor Stakes back in April.
