A Gabriel Landeskog Return Is Finally On The Table

Gabriel Landeskog has not played an NHL game since 2022. Isn’t that crazy? However, it appears we will finally start to have clarity on the future of the Colorado Avalanche captain. Avs reporter Ryan Boulding caught up with head coach Jared Bednar after their elimination against the Stars. While the 31-year-old was not close to returning this postseason, there is optimism that 2024-2025 is when he will make his highly anticipated return. Check out the full post below:

Despite being shut down before the start of last season, some still held out hope for a return during the playoffs. That obviously would never have been the case, though they certainly will need him now. Especially when you consider that Val Nichushkin will not play for at least six months, Colorado needs help up front. Getting the heart and soul of the team back is a big step towards remaining a contender. It’s a separate subject, but we very well might have seen Nichushkin play his final game for the team. Wish him all the best but letting your team down two years in a row with off-ice problems does not bode well in a locker room.

Cleared For Landing

It’s been a long time, but people forget how good he’s been when on the ice. In his last four healthy seasons (18/19-21/22), he scored 230 points in 232 games. He together with Nate MacKinnon and Mikko Rantanen formed one of the best lines in hockey. Before Connor McDavid, he was named the youngest captain in NHL history. He means so much to this team in a lot of different ways. Colorado has had to put plugs into the Top Six for the past few seasons so getting the gang back together sets them up really well for 2024-2025.

For the second straight year, the Colorado Avalanche have come up short in the playoffs after their 2022 Stanley Cup. It just so happens that the same series was the last time we saw Gabriel Landeskog on the ice. Fingers crossed he can make a heroic return.
