Landeskog recently underwent offseason wrist surgery, the Denver Post reports.

Landeskog, who was still wearing a cast as of Friday, will not be able to play for Sweden during May's World Championships as a result of the procedure. The winger is expected to be healthy for training camp and ready to reprise his top-six role for the Avalanche. He finished the recently completed season with 23 goals, 59 points, and a minus-2 rating over 82 games.

Landeskog extended his point streak to three games with an assist in Tuesday's win over the Predators.

Aside from a decline in plus/minus from plus-21 to minus-2, Landeskog's offensive production (23 goals, 58 points) looks quite similar to what he delivered in 2013-14. There was some hope this season that Landeskog could take another next step forward this season and develop into a 70-point scorer for the Avalanche, but at just 22 years old, he still has plenty of time to reach his full potential.

Landeskog scored a power-play goal and dished out an assist Thursday in a 4-1 win over the Canucks.

That's points in three straight and seven points in the last five games for Landeskog, who's at least partially compensated for his severe struggles throughout the first half of the season by rounding into form for the second half. March has been his strongest month by far, as he's racked up six goals and 14 points in 11 games.

Landeskog potted a goal -- his 21st of the season -- and added an assist in Monday's 3-2 loss to the Flames.

The late-season surge continues for Colorado's captain, as he's now put up 14 points over his last 13 games. He's managed to crack the 50-point barrier (51 points) despite a horrible start and could challenge to get back to 60 with 10 games left on the season. Landeskog is also 47th overall in SOG with 192 and has spent 75 minutes in the sin bin, making him a nice multi-categorical fantasy also in all leagues.

Landeskog picked up an assist and an empty-net goal -- his 20th tally of the year -- Thursday in a 5-2 win over Arizona.

With Thursday's plus-2 rating, Landeskog's push back toward the positive side of the ledger continues, as he's now minus-1 for the season. Despite going two straight off the scoresheet prior to Thursday's action, Landeskog has rattled off 11 points in his last nine games and is essentially a lock to reach 50 points for the third time in his three full NHL seasons.

Landeskog remained hot Sunday, notching a goal and an assist in a win over the Wild.

Landeskog has been dominant of late, scoring in three straight games and piling up seven points in his last five games. Dating back to mid-February, the 22-year-old has scored nine goals in his last 12 games. He's caught fire on the Avs' top line and with 69 PIM on the season, he makes for a great all-around fantasy option.

Landeskog was dominant against Pittsburgh on Wednesday, scoring a goal and adding two assists in an impressive 3-1 home win. He also skated to a plus-2.

All aboard the Landeskog express! Patient owners have been treated recently to the tune of 12 points -- seven of them goals -- in the last 10 games by the Colorado captain. He's definitely doing his best to turn around arguably one of the most disappointing fantasy seasons in the entire NHL, pumping pucks on net (27 SOG in the last 10 games) while racking up PIM (65 on the season) to go with his 17 goals and 26 assists. Props to you if you hung onto the 23-year-old Swede, as he's looking more and more like his elite multi-category-contributing self with just under a quarter of the season left.

Landeskog was held pointless Saturday, but he picked up 10 PIM in a loss to the Wild.

Landeskog, who has recorded six goals in his last nine games, also fired three shots on goal in Saturday's loss. Landeskog is impressing right now and considering the top-line forward has racked up 65 PIM on the season, he makes for a good all-around fantasy option.

Landeskog scored his 16th goal of the season and added an assist in a 5-4 shootout win over the Stars on Friday.

The resurgence continues for Landy, who's now rattled off six goals and nine points in the last eight games. The Avs' captain is certainly doing his best to redeem himself with owners who have been saddled with one of the biggest fantasy disappointments of the year, as his 40 points and minus-5 rating are still well off the mark of his 65-point, plus-21 campaign from 2013-14. Landeskog does, however, have 11 power-play points, surpassing last year's 10, so if he can continue his run of strong play, his ledger may not wind up being that disappointing, after all.

Landeskog scored for the fifth game in a row Friday, and also added an assist in a 4-1 road win over Chicago.Talk about market correction! Until his five-game goal outburst, Landeskog was struggling with a career-low 6.8 shooting percentage. Now, it's back up to 9.1 percent, which is more in line with his career mark of 9.4. The Swedish captain still has just 37 points in 59 games this year after 2013-14's 65-point effort, but he's got nine points the last 11, so it's better late than never for owners who have been oh-so-patient with the 22-year-old.
