Gabriel Landeskog was limited to 36 games due to injury this season, but his nine goals, 17 points, and particularly his minus-4 rating are all mild disappointments. However, he is still only 20, and his ceiling remains quite high. (Updated 4/27/13).
Gabriel Landeskog had an outstanding first season in the NHL in 2011-12, winning the Calder Trophy for Rookie of the Year. Landy tied Ryan Nugent-Hopkins for the rookie scoring title with 52 points and led all rookie forwards in a host of other categories, including plus-minus (plus-20), shots on goal (270), hits (219) and takeaways (58). Furthermore, he was the first rookie forward in NHL history to score 20+ goals and register 200+ hits. Looking ahead, it will no doubt be difficult for Landeskog to avoid the dreaded sophomore jinx this season. However, at just 19 yearsof age, Landy isn't even close to his prime yet and should continue to get better and better and better. Expect him to resume his role as top left winger for the Avs next season. (Updated 8/14/12)
