Landeskog earned an assist in Saturday's wild 6-5 win over the visiting Stars.
The Avs' captain also skated to a plus-2 and laid three hits in the contest. Not yet 24, it's hard to believe this is Landeskog's sixth season in the NHL, let alone that he's racked up 20-plus goals in each of his four full campaigns. Colorado as a whole had a down year in 2015-16, so it'll be interesting to see what kind of impact a fresh head coach in Jared Bednar behind the bench has on guys like Landeskog, Matt Duchene, Nathan MacKinnon and Tyson Barrie.
With the man advantage tally, Landeskog reached 20 goals for the fourth time in his NHL career. The Colorado captain is up to 51 points in 71 games and continues to produce on the second line. With Colorado still chasing the final wild-card spot in the Western Conference and the games having great value, Landeskog is a safe bet in fantasy right now.
Gabriel Landeskog returned to the lineup Sunday, netting a goal and an assist in a win over the Oilers.
Landeskog had missed the previous three games due to suspension, but showed no rust in his return, firing four shots on goal and putting up a multi-point effort. The captain now has 18 goals and 48 points in 66 games for a Colorado team currently occupying a wildcard spot. The top-six forward can be rolled out with confidence right now as the Colorado Avalanche continue their push towards the playoffs.
With 46 points through 65 games, Landeskog has once again proven to be a valuable fantasy option this year, and will slot back in to his usual role in the Avs' top six and on the power play.
