"SAN JOSE. Gabriel Landeskog hesitated never."
"To set up for Tre Kronor in the world CUP was granted."
" It is always a great honour to play for the national team, so can I I will always. Now it is also very inspiring that he has the chance to win a third gold in a row, " says Colorado-the captain to Sportbladet."
"the world CUP-Announcement has been held up a tad – but it was not that Gabriel Landeskog was reluctant to go to Bratislava."
"No, I've had an injury earlier in the season and wanted to undergo proper scrutiny and get the confirmation that everything is okay before I said yes," he says on the phone from Denver."
"And when the doctors gave the go-ahead called the ”Gabbe” directly to the head coach Grönborg."
"It is always a great honour to play for the Tre Kronor, especially in the world CUP, so I can play, I will always," he continues."
"– Now we have the chance to win a historic third straight gold. It is very inspiring and exciting."
"A gold medal in Bratislava would also help to rinse away the bitter taste after Colorado's tongue coming out of the Stanley Cup playoffs."
"– Yes, it was inglorious that we lost Game 7 in San Jose, I thought we had a good chance to go really far this year. But we get to go again next year instead, " the Avalanche captain and getting ready to pack."
"the Trip to Slovakia waiting."
"– I fly tomorrow, Wednesday, and landing in Vienna on Thursday morning. Then we go for the gold."
