The NHL has suspended Gabriel Landeskog for three games for cross checking Simon Despres.
Landeskog cross-checked Ducks’ defenseman Simon Despres in the head during Wednesday’s win and has been suspended for the next three games. With Landeskog suspended, Andreas Martinsen will return to the lineup. The Avalanche captain is eligible to return to the lineup next Sunday in Edmonton.
Landeskog was scratched in Wednesday's game against the Penguins. Landeskog was expected to play but did not come out for warmups and ended up being scratched with Mikhail Grigorenko returning to the lineup. Consider Landeskog as day-to-day until the Avalanche release more information.
Landeskog has served his two-game suspension and will play on Thursday.
After serving a two game suspension, Landeskog will be back on the Avs’ top line with Nathan MacKinnon and Matt Duchene on Thursday. Landeskog’s return means less minutes for Mikhail Grigorenko—Colorado’s captain has 12 points (5G / 7A) in 16 games.
Avalanche head coach Patrick Roy says that Gabriel Landeskog (leg) is out for tonight's game. He is listed as day-to-day and is expected to be on the upcoming road trip.
Landeskog played 16:07 and recorded three shots on goal in the season opener. There is no word on what happened to the Avs captain, but make sure he is not in your lineup tonight. Colorado's next game is not until Tuesday, so there is a good chance Landeskog could be back by then.
Gabriel Landeskog missed practice with leg injury.
There is no word on when Landeskog suffered the injury. He played 16:07, recording three shots and three hits in the 6-1 win over the Ducks last night. Monitor his status prior to tomorrow's contest with the Predators.
