For a long time, it felt like this day was never going to come for Colorado Avalanche fans. And maybe Gabriel Landeskog felt the same way.
But on Monday morning, it finally happened.
Landeskog was back on the ice.
There’s still a long ways to go in his recovery, but having him back in town, and around the team, is huge.
We’re not talking hi-octane skating by any means, but seeing Landeskog on the ice had fans excited. A crowd formed at Family Sports in anticipation for his return.
He skated for around 30 minutes, mostly working on the basics.
Take a look at some of the video I took from Landeskog’s first day on the ice in months.
