What stick does Gabriel Landeskog use?
This week's Spec Check is on Colorado Avalanche Captain Gabriel Landeskog, a guy who contributes on the score sheet in more ways than one on a regular basis. In two playoff games so far this year, he has one goal and 4 assists and even dropped the mitts in Game 1 against the Blues, stepping up to protect star forward Mikko Rantanen.
Landeskog uses a 2N Pro XL build. The XL has a weight similar to the ADV (BGP2B code), but with a Nexus kick point. For graphics, he goes with the custom Flylite graphic in Avs colors which we think looks great.
In terms of curve, Landeskog goes with old faithful, the P92 curve. What makes his use of the P92 that much better is the fact that the guy it was originally named after signs Landeskog's cheques. Swipe over to see Joe Sakic, GM of the Avalanche discussing how the Sakic curve came to be and why he thinks that it has become the most popular curve in hockey.
