Landeskog did not return to the game.

On Friday, head coach Jared Bednar confirmed that Landeskog will be out four to six weeks. With the final game of the regular season scheduled for April 7, Landy is likely out for the remainder of the year.

The news comes as a huge blow to the Avalanche, as they are sitting four points out of a playoff spot. Landeskog has 33 goals and 69 points this season, both career highs
