Avalanche captain Gabe Landeskog has been put on injured reserve and will not play in Saturday afternoon's game against the Edmonton Oilers at the Pepsi Center, coach Joe Sacco said after practice Friday.

Landeskog suffered head and leg injuries in last Saturday's 4-0 loss at San Jose. And although he returned in that game, he missed three ensuing games at Edmonton, Vancouver and Calgary. He now only suffers from a head injury, Sacco said, and could return from IR as soon as Monday, but there is no timetable in place.

Forward David Jones suffered a knee injury in Thursday's 6-3 victory against the Flames and will also be unavailable Saturday against the Oilers. He is day-to-day.

The Avs have called up journeyman forward David Van Der Gulik from Lake Erie of the American Hockey League to serve as the 12th forward. Van Der Gulik, 29, played 31 games for the Avs over the last two seasons.
