Colorado Avalanche captain Gabriel Landeskog will return to the lineup tonight when they take on the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The 20-year-old captain injured his leg in a collision with Corey Perry in Anaheim, on Wednesday. As a result he missed the Avs’ contest with Nashville on Friday. He returns to the lineup tonight as Colorado looks to get off to a 3-0 start after finishing 29th in the shortened season. In Colorado’s season opener Landeskog played 16:07, recording zero points with three shots.

Landeskog will return to his regular spot on the Avalanche top line with Paul Stastny and Alex Tanguay. Feel free to deploy Landy as you usually would.
