Dater passes along Swedish reports that indicate Landeskog’s exit is tax-related; it’s possible that the 2012 Calder Trophy winner would have been forced to pay a significant income tax if he was in Sweden much longer.

Landeskog became the Colorado Avalanche’s captain in early September, making him the youngest player to don the “C” in NHL history.
