Colorado Avalanche head coach Jared Bednar said there's some «concern» over lingering injuries for both captain Gabriel Landeskog and Darren Helm. Bednar added that the team still didn't have a concrete timeline for Landeskog's return, according to The Athletic's Peter Baugh.

Landeskog is still dealing with a lower-body injury that plagued him last season, although he played through that injury during their Stanley Cup-winning playoff run. Bednar told reporters roughly three weeks ago now that Landeskog wouldn't skate anytime soon and was expected to miss the start of the season.
Landeskog underwent a knee surgery procedure in March, that caused him to miss the final two months of the regular season. The 29 year old, was able to make it back for Game 1 of the playoffs against the Nashville Predators.
At the time, Bednar indicated that his knee had been bothering him for some time, and it was an issue the team and player wanted to rectify before the playoffs started. The fact that the tone around Landeskog's injury appears to be increasingly negative isn't a good sign for his return to the lineup, especially when taken in relation to such a long-term knee issue.
Helm is still recovering from an injury that he played through during the team's playoff run, although his injury is abdominal. Bednar said last week that Helm wouldn't be able to play for «some time» into the season. Helm resigned with the Avs on a one-year $1.25 AAV this summer.
The lingering injuries for the Avs, illustrates what a grind it is to reach the ultimate goal of the Stanley Cup.
