This is Gabriel Landeskog's Set 1 road sweater from the strike shortened season of 2012-13. This sweater is his 1st captain's jersey available to collectors. Landy kept his 1st captain's sweater from opening night against the Minnesota Wild. He wore this sweater in all road games up to March 14, 2013. The sweater shows great wear as the Avs only issued two sets to the players during the strike year.. Despite keeping his captain debut sweater, Landy wore this sweater for 8 road games, recording 1 goal and 3 assists while averaging close to 19 minutes of ice time in those games... The sweater has great wear and exhibits several team repairs and a nice puck mark on the crest which must of happened late in the last game that he wore the sweater in Minnesota on March 14, 2013 as I cannot track down a photo match for the puck mark... I was able to photo match the crease in the sweater below the collar and a team repair on the right elbow as is evident in the photos below.. This is a great game worn sweater from the Avalanche captain.. Landeskog is my favorite Avs player and I am very happy to have one of his coveted sweaters in my collection.
