Another Denver-area professional athlete is drawing attention with the way he celebrates.

First there was "Tebowing" - a term coined in respect to the way Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow takes a knee at the conclusion of contests.

Now, Colorado Avalanche rookie Gabriel Landeskog has provided the latest Rocky Mountain craze - "Landeskoging."

"I think it's pretty funny," Landeskog told NHL.com of his now-signature pose. "I think it's our fans and how great they are with coming up with funny things and how involved they are. It's a lot of fun. Denver is a great sports city with the fans, social media and everything."

"Landeskoging" wasn't a planned pose - merely what transpired after the second overall pick scored an overtime goal against the Anaheim Ducks on Monday.

Landeskog, who was questionable for the contest with the flu, fell face-down on the ice with fists clenched near his head after scoring the goal.

"I didn't have any energy," Landeskog said. "Then when I scored I was just so relieved I fell to the ice. And then this guy tweeted a picture and said he was Landeskoging and said it was the new Tebowing."

Landeskog, 19, has collected a team-leading 20 goals with 26 assists this season.
