(DENVER) — Colorado Avalanche captain Gabriel Landeskog will be staying with the team for seven more years. Landeskog and the franchise agreed to a deal on Thursday that will keep him through the 2020-21 season.
“I would like to thank the Kroenke family and the entire Avalanche organization for their trust and belief in me,” Landeskog said in the statement. “I love Colorado and I love being a part of this wonderful community. There is no other place I’d rather be than in Denver wearing the Avalanche logo. I am looking forward to training camp and the upcoming season.”
Landeskog was selected by Colorado with the second pick in the 2011 NHL Draft. In his two seasons at Colorado, Landeskog has collected 31 goals and 38 assists in 118 career games.
“Gabe is and will continue to be a large part of the foundation of this hockey team for many years to come,” Avalanche executive vice president of hockey operations Joe Sakic said in a statement.
