Back injury sidelines Gabriel Landeskog for Avs tonight

AP

The Colorado Avalanche announced that captain Gabriel Landeskog won’t play against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday because of a back injury.

That’s all they shared. There’s no word on whether this might keep the sturdy Swede out any longer.

Perhaps his back has been bugging him for a bit?

After quite a streak for about a month, “Landy” has been limited to an assist in his last five games played.

Even a limited Landeskog is a blow for the Avalanche, who must hope that this is merely a minor ailment.
