He was born in Sweden.
Since that won’t work, I guess we’ll just have to settle for “Captain.”
This is my Captain face.
Today, the Avalanche made history by making the 19-year-old the youngest captain in NHL history.
Take that, Sidney Crosby.
Landeskog is 19 year, 286 days old – 11 days younger that Captain Awkward Pockets who was 19 years, 297 days old when he was given the “C” waaaaaaaaaaaaay back in May 2007.
This move to make Landeskog the captain comes after Milan Hejduk announced that he was giving up his role as the Avalanche’s captain. He will continue to serve as an alternate captain, along with Paul “Bang Bang Bang” Stastny.
Landeskog will be just the 4th captain in Avalanche history, the 11th captain in Avs/Nordiques history, and only the third European born player to serve as captain.
Who’s got thumbs and is the youngest captain in the NHL?
It’s no secret that Foppa 2.0 is a huge favorite here at WUYS.
He’s just so darn awesome that we can’t contain ourselves.
He’s been named a Foxy Friday.
We adore his twitter wikkid hahd corah.
And we lauded his feats of super-human hockey strength.
He possesses all the qualties that a future NHL superstar should have – talent, bucket loads of charisma, excellent camera presence, and a face that could launch a thousand ships.
We are card-carrying members of the Gabriel Landeskog fan club and today’s announcement makes us really happy.
Now if we can only sort out that whole NHL vs. NHLPA business…
Peep this, ladies.
