Colorado Avalanche captain passes out chicken fingers in Aurora

Gabriel Landeskog dished out an assist in the Stanley Cup Final, and now he's dishing out chicken fingers.

AURORA, Colo. — The Colorado Avalanche are Stanley Cup champions and team captain Gabriel Landeskog was celebrating with the fans on Wednesday.

Landeskog was dishing out chicken fingers at Raising Cane's in Aurora from 1 to 2 p.m. Wednesday. Raising Cane's said Landeskog was working the drive-thru line at 14241 East Alameda Ave. near Alameda and Interstate 225.

Aurora Police said that drivers in the area should expect delays, and there were numerous fans on foot.

"Landeskog dished out an assist during the championship-clinching game in Tampa Bay, but on Wednesday, June 29, he won’t be passing pucks, he’ll be delivering craveable chicken fingers!" Raising Cane's said in a news release. 

"Local 'Caniacs' can expect an assist from Landeskog, who’ll be passing Box Combo meals to everyone in the Raising Cane’s drive-thru in Aurora."

Just before 3 p.m., police said Landeskog had left the building. "We appreciate everyone's patience and excitement about having our very own @Avalanche Captain in Aurora! Please drive safe when leaving the area."

Below, Landeskog works the drive-thru at Raising Cane's in Aurora:

Avalanche fans that couldn't get to Aurora on Wednesday can catch Landeskog in the Stanley Cup parade and rally in downtown Denver on Thursday.

The parade will step off at 10 a.m. Thursday at Denver's Union Station. The parade will march down 17th Street to Civic Center for a rally that will run until 1 p.m.
