Gabriel Landeskog has lost the title of being the youngest player to ever become an NHL captain.

Landeskog took the role at 19 years and 286 days old, while Edmonton's Connor McDavid was recently given the 'C' when he was 20 days younger. Landeskog doesn't mind losing that distinction, but he's also one of the few people that can understand exactly what challenges McDavid will face as a young captain. "Whether he’s ready or not for it, he will be one day," Landeskog said. "He’ll keep learning. I’m standing here in my fifth season as a captain and I’m still learning new things every day. It takes time. I’m happy for him and happy I don’t have to answer any more questions about the record any more."

Gabriel Landeskog is happy to see the Edmonton Oilers make Connor McDavid the youngest captain in NHL history.

Prior to McDavid being named captain of the Oilers, Landeskog was the youngest captain in NHL history. "It’s great," Landeskog said. "I’m happy for him and I think the Oilers got a good one in him. He’s already established himself as a superstar in the league and he’ll continue to grow as a player and a person." In all, four players have worn the "C" as teenagers. They are: McDavid, Landeskog, Sidney Crosby and Vincent Lecavalier.

Gabriel Landeskog likes the way coach Jared Bednar wants the Avalanche to play in 2016-17.

"He wants to play fast. He wants to play quick and play in the O-zone and get on the forecheck," Landeskog said. "With our speed up front, I think it will benefit us. Spending less time in the D-zone will be something we'll all be looking to do." He joined his Colorado teammates, along with fellow Swede Carl Soderberg, for practice on Thursday after playing at the World Cup of Hockey.

Gabriel Landeskog talked about his experiences with head injuries and he had some great information for players to protect themselves and their teammates.

"I'm not only writing this article for NHL, college and junior players, but also for youth hockey players who might hear their friends complaining about headaches or the lights in the locker room bothering them," said Landeskog. "You shouldn't just let it go. Tell your coach or your parents what's going on with your teammate. One thing I've learned about leadership is that it's not always about being a rah-rah guy, or giving a great speech. Sometimes it's just about looking out for your teammates and understanding what they're going through. That includes the injuries that you can't see — that don't bleed all over your jersey like my broken nose did." He also talked about the importance of not rushing back because you have to protect your brain.

Avalanche captain Gabriel Landeskog doesn't think his team deserved to be in the playoffs.

The Avalanche were neck-and-neck with the Wild for the final Wild Card spot in the West before they completely collapsed down the stretch. "A team that had the chance coming down the stretch and instead of winning six in a row or five in a row, or five out of six, we started losing six in a row or five out of six," Landeskog said. "That stuff isn't going to get you in the playoffs, and when you do that, you don't deserve to be in the playoffs."
