2011-12 Gabriel Landeskog Set 1 Home Rookie Season (MeiGray)

This is Gabriel Landeskog's Set 1 home sweater from the 2011-12 season in which Landeskog was a rookie.. Landeskog wore this sweater in 13 home games from the beginning of the season, through November 30, 2011.  He did not score in this sweater, but he had 4 assists.  Landy had a stellar rookie season scoring 22 goals and 30 assists for 52 points.  The following season, Landeskog becomes the youngest captain in the history of the NHL at 19.9 years old.  This sweater exhibits great wear with several team repairs on both sleeves and heavy interior pilling.  Landeskog represents part of the young core of the Colorado Avalanche and I am extremely lucky to have added one of his rookie sweaters to my collection.. 

 The photos below are of Landeskog wearing this sweater in home games up until 11/30/11 Several photo matches are apparent with the team repairs on both sleeves of the sweater
