Colorado Avalanche captain Gabriel Landeskog will undergo a cartilage transplant in his right knee on Wednesday and is expected to miss the 2023-24 season, the team announced Tuesday.
It will mark his second straight season on the sidelines. Knee issues prevented Landeskog from playing this season, though he had hoped to make an appearance in the Stanley Cup playoffs.

Dr. Brian Cole will perform the surgery at the Rush University Medical Center in Chicago.
Landeskog, a 30-year-old forward, helped the Avalanche win the Stanley Cup last summer and underwent arthroscopic knee surgery in October.
Landeskog was attempting to return to the ice in time for the playoffs, with coach Jared Bednar telling reporters on April 12, “He’s pushing himself to the limits of what he feels he can do.”
Landeskog had 59 points (30 goals, 29 assists) in 51 games in the 2021-22 season before adding 22 points (11 goals, 11 assists) in 20 playoff games. In 738 career regular-season games, all with Colorado, the former No. 2 overall draft pick has tallied 571 points (248 goals, 323 assists).
