Colorado Avalanche continue struggling with injures while trying to hold the top spot in Central Division. After star winger Mikko Rantanen recently went down with a lower-body injury, the same thing now happened to captain Gabriel Landeskog.
The team announced on Tuesday that Landeskog is injured and will be “out indefinitely.”
Although head coach Jared Bednar clarified later that “out indefinitely” means Landeskog is still being evaluated, he admitted that the 26-year-old Swede might face a lengthy break.
“Landy got hurt over the last couple of games, he came to practice on Sunday, had some discomfort, and he went for further evaluation and he’s got a lower body injury,” – Bednar told reporters. “He’s going to miss some significant time here.”
Gabriel Landeskog played 11 games with Colorado this season, contributing with three goals and four assists for a total of seven points. This was a continuation of his fine form from the last season when he earned his first All-Star appearance. In the 2018/19 NHL season, Landeskog had career highs all across the board, contributing with 34 goals, 41 assists, and a total of 75 points.
