News: Landeskog registered his first tally of the season -- a first-period power-play goal -- in Thursday's loss to the Senators. Impact: Landeskog's goal snapped an 0-for-13 drought on the power play to begin the season for the Avs, while also ending the forward's personal dry spell. Counting his scoreless five games in the preseason, Landeskog had gone without a point in nine straight contests before nabbing the goal Tuesday. His offense should come around eventually, but given the early hole he's put himself in, it might be difficult for him to surpass last season's total of 65 points.(RotoWire, )

News: Landeskog has failed to record a point in Colorado's first four games of the season, firing just six shots on net and skating to a minus-2 rating in the process. Impact: Yes, it's early -- and the Avs as a whole have struggled to score out of the gate -- but Landy's owners have got to be a little bit bothered. It also doesn't help that he registered just a single assist and no goals in five preseason games, either. Compound that with the fact that critics around the league are citing advanced statistics to predict a significant regression for the Avs this season based on their poor puck possession numbers, and we could be inching toward discussions of potential fantasy letdowns in Denver this year. Landeskog should be fine, but he and other stars like Matt Duchene, Ryan O'Reilly, and even sophomore sensation Nathan MacKinnon, could prove to be disappointing selections relative to where they were drafted. Look for the 21-year-old Swede to make an impact on Colorado's upcoming road trip against the Senators and Canadiens.(RotoWire, )
