Avalanche captain Landeskog suspended three games

Watch as Colorado Avalanche superstar Gabriel Landeskog escapes getting a penalty for an obvious penalty.

Colorado Avalanche captain Gabriel Landeskog was suspended three games by the NHL’s department on player safety on Thursday after a high hit on Simon Despres.

Landeskog, whose Avs shut out the Anaheim Ducks 3-0 Wednesday night, wasn’t penalized for the hit on Despres.

Despres was slow to get up but returned to the game.
