Landeskog placed on IR; van der Gulik recalled from Lake Erie

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

The Colorado Avalanche report that Gabe Landeskog has been placed on injured reserved indefinitely, retroactive to January 26, 2013. Replacing his spot on the roster is David van der Gulik.

Gabe Landeskog was on the receiving end of a massive hit by Brad Stuart of the San Jose Sharks. The on-ice officials did not call a penalty on the play, and Landy made it back for the last part of the game. Unfortunately, that's the last he's played since. The reports that have filtered out have simply said he is suffering from a head and leg injury, but details have not been provided. No disciplinary action was pursued by the NHL for the hit.

Landeskog has one point in four games, with 15 shots on net and 8 hits.

To replace Landeskog on the roster, the Avalanche have recalled forward David van der Gulik from the Lake Erie Monsters. van der Gulik was one of a handful LEM players invited to camp in January and is joining three of those players—Mark Olver, Patrick Bordeleau and Mike Sgarbossa—in Denver. In 39 games, van der Gulik has 12 goals and 13 assists for 25 points for the Monsters. The 29-year-old played 25 games last season in an Avalanche sweater, registering 1 goal and 5 assists for 6 points.

Per the Denver Post, David Jones suffered a knee injury in last Thursday's game against the Calgary Flames and will not play on Saturday against the Edmonton Oilers.
