Gabriel Ingemar John Landeskog (born November 23, 1992) is a Swedish professional ice hockey forward, who played for the Kitchener Rangers of the Ontario Hockey League. He was a member of Sweden's 2011 World Junior Hockey Championship team. He was selected 2nd overall in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft by the Colorado Avalanche.
Gabriel is the son of former Swedish Elite League defenceman Tony Landeskog. He has a twin sister back home with his family in Stockholm, Sweden. He moved to Canada by himself at age 16 in time for the 2009–10 OHL season.
After a successful season for Djurgårdens IF in the J20 SuperElit Gabriel debuted in Elitserien on February 21, 2009, in a game against Brynäs IF, which Djurgården lost 2–4. At age 16 years and 90 days he became the youngest player in Djurgården's history, and one of the youngest to ever have played in Elitserien. He recorded his first point in Elitserien on January 24 in his second game, a 2–2 tie against Skellefteå AIK. On August 4, 2009, his CHL rights were traded from the Plymouth Whalers to the Kitchener Rangers.
In the 2009-10 season Landeskog roomed with former Ranger Jeff Skinner now a member of the Carolina Hurricanes. By the end of the year, Gabriel was third among OHL rookies in points (trailing Matt Puempel and Boone Jenner) and goals (trailing Puempel and Ivan Telegin). In the playoffs, Kitchener made it to the conference finals where they were eliminated by Windsor, and Gabriel was third overall on his team as well as the highest scoring rookie ahead of teammate Ryan Murphy
Landeskog was drafted 2nd overall by the Colorado Avalanche in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.
