Landeskog leaves Swedish team

Colorado Avalanche new captain Gabriel Landeskog is reportedly leaving Djurgarden of the Swedish League after playing there for several weeks during the NHL lockout.

According to the Denver Post, Landeskog, 20, is heading back to America partially because of tax reasons.

The young forward is believed to have to pay some significant Swedish income taxes if he chose to stay there longer.

Landeskog, who was in the process of buying a house in Denver before he flew to Sweden, could also be looking to get back to his new purchase and wait out the end of the lockout in the States.

However, the Avs captain could is rumored to be considering going back to Kitchener of the OHL to train there with his former teammates and coach there.

In 82 games with the Avalanche last season, Landeskog posted 22 goals and 30 assists for 52 points.
