Landeskog found twine twice in Tuesday's come-from-behind 4-3 OT win over the Coyotes.

The tallies broke an 11-game goalless slump for the Swedish captain, who has easily been one of the biggest high-profile fantasy letdowns this season. Thankfully, Landeskog appears to have shifted gears lately with six points, 15 shots and a plus-5 rating over the last four games. Not surprisingly, the Avs are 3-1 during that span, so things are looking in Denver. Owners can finally exhale.

Landeskog collected two assists in Saturday's win over the Hurricanes.

Landeskog is now on a three-game point streak, but still hasn't scored a goal in 11 games. While his recent production has been nice, this current goal-drought just isn't acceptable for a guy who found twine 26 times last season. Skating on the second line and top power-play unit with Nathan Mackinnon, the goals will come sooner or later for Landeskog. The 22-year-old is starting to heat up, which is key for the Avs, as the captain has produced just 10 points on the season thus far.

Landeskog picked up an assist in Saturday's win over the Devils.

A number of Avs skaters have qualified as disappointments this season, but Landeskog might be the biggest bust to date. Even after picking up the helper Saturday, Landeskog has just seven points in 19 games this season. To make matters worse, he's currently sitting on a minus-11 rating, tied for the fifth-worst mark in the league. His production in previous seasons makes him a worthy buy-low target, but he could still struggle to surpass 50 points on the campaign.

Landeskog collected a power-play assist to go along with six penalty minutes in Thursday's 5-0 win over the Islanders.

The assist was Landeskog's first of the season, and only his fifth point overall in 11 games. A plodding start has dragged his value down in the early going, but he's shown some signs of life recently, producing all five of his points within the last seven contests.

Landeskog registered his first tally of the season -- a first-period power-play goal -- in Thursday's loss to the Senators.

Landeskog's goal snapped an 0-for-13 drought on the power play to begin the season for the Avs, while also ending the forward's personal dry spell. Counting his scoreless five games in the preseason, Landeskog had gone without a point in nine straight contests before nabbing the goal Tuesday. His offense should come around eventually, but given the early hole he's put himself in, it might be difficult for him to surpass last season's total of 65 points.

Landeskog has failed to record a point in Colorado's first four games of the season, firing just six shots on net and skating to a minus-2 rating in the process.

Yes, it's early -- and the Avs as a whole have struggled to score out of the gate -- but Landy owners have got to be a little bit worried. It also doesn't help that he registered just a single assist and no goals in five preseason games, either. Compound that with the fact that critics around the league are citing advanced statistics to predict a significant regression for the Avs this season based on poor puck possession numbers, and we could be inching toward discussions of potential fantasy let-downs in Denver this year. Landeskog should be fine, but he and other stars like Matt Duchene, Ryan O'Reilly, and even sophomore sensation Nathan MacKinnon could prove to be risky picks this season (depending on what round they were selected in, of course). Look for the 21-year-old Swede to make an impact on Colorado's upcoming road trip against the Senators and Canadiens.

Landeskog finished the preseason with no goals and just one assist in five games played.

The 21-year-old winger scored 26 goals and added 39 assists last season and is poised to have another successful campaign this season. With the departure of Paul Stastny, Landeskog could see increased playing time on a line with Nathan MacKinnon and Alex Tanguay as well as see valuable playing time on the power play.

Gabriel Landeskog believes home ice advantage will help push the Avalanche in Game 7.

"When we're at home, it's like we have one or two extra players out there. The crowd has been unbelievable," Landeskog said. "It's probably hard to imagine for (nonplayers), but when we're on the ice every single rush, every odd-man rush, every backcheck, you feel the crowd. They're so into it, and you want to push that extra mile when you hear that." The Colorado captain has three goals and one assist in six games versus Minnesota in the series. Landeskog has earned one helper in his last four outings.

Gabriel Landeskog had two goals, including the game-winner, in Colorado's 4-2 victory over Minnesota on Saturday.

While rookie Nathan MacKinnon has desirably attracted a lot of the attention in Colorado after recording seven points in two playoff games, Landeskog has also been very impressive with three goals in his first two career postseason contests. Landeskog had 26 goals and 65 points in 81 games this season.
