Ask any player, and they'll always remember. No matter how many they've scored or how long they've been in the NHL, no one fails to recall when he scored his first goal.

Avalanche rookie Gabriel Lande-skog, therefore, will never forget what happened with 40.8 seconds left in regulation Wednesday night. At that moment, Landeskog scored his first NHL goal.

The 18-year-old also will be remembered as the youngest Swede to score a goal in the NHL — beating Tampa Bay's Victor Hedman by 28 days.
