NHL: Avalanche Sign LW Gabriel Landeskog to 7-Year, $39 M Deal

Aug 16 2013, 12:05am CDT | by

The Colorado Avalanche signed 20-year-old Swedish left wing and team captain Gabriel Landeskog to a seven-year, $39-million deal on Thursday.

The Colorado Avalanche signed team captain Gabriel Landeskog to a seven-year deal on Thursday.

According to the official NHL website, the extension kicks in at the beginning of the 2013-14 NHL season and runs through 2020-21. The extension is said to be worth $39 million, citing a report from Sportsnet.com. 

The Denver Post's Mike Chambers adds the new contract has a $5.57 million annual hit to Colorado's salary cap. 

Avalanche executive vice president of hockey operations Joe Sakic says Landeskog's new deal is proof of the owners' commitment to team and their fan base. 

"Gabe is and will continue to be a large part of the foundation of this hockey team for many years to come. Signing our captain to a long-term extension demonstrates the commitment of [owners] Stan and Josh Kroenke to this franchise and to our fan base. In just two seasons, Gabe has already proven to be a great asset to our organization both on and off the ice.

"The fact that he has agreed to a long-term deal shows that he believes in this team, his teammates and the direction of this franchise moving forward." 

On his part, Landeskog said he loves Colorado and wearing the Avalanche uniform. 

"I love Colorado and I love being a part of this wonderful community. There is no other place I'd rather be than in Denver wearing the Avalanche logo. I am looking forward to training camp and the upcoming season." 

Landeskog became the youngest team captain in NHL history in September at 19 years and 286 days - 11 days younger than Pittsburgh Penguins star center Sidney Crosby when he was given the same honor in 2007. 

He was the second overall selection in the 2011 NHL draft and went on to earn that season's Calder Trophy as the league's rookie of the year.
