This may be the end for Gabriel Landeskog’s NHL career

The Colorado Avalanche have just revealed that captain Gabriel Landeskog would be sidelined for the Entire of the 2023–24 season with a knee injury.

If this sounds like Deja Vu it’s because Landeskog missed the entire 2022-23 regular season with the same injury, but was expected to join the team for the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Landeskog’s condition did not improve though and he was not able to join the team for the post-season.

Today’s news effectively means that Landeskog won’t play NHL hockey for two years. Wow…

At this point you have to assume that his NHL career is in jeopardy, if not already over.

If that is the situation and Landeskog’s career is indeed done, he will go on a high note. He succeeded in raising the Stanley Cup above his head during his final game. If you had to, it’s not an awful way to go.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: and let's talk some hockey!
