Matt Duchene Set To Return Tonight
Good news is on the way for fans of the Colorado Avalanche, as their star center Matt Duchene is set to return to the ice tonight.
Duchene, 25, has been out of action since last Friday where he was forced to leave the game versus the Winnipeg Jets during the second period after a hit from Jets defenseman Jacob Trouba. Duchene was cleared for contact on Wednesday. Duchene has 11 points this season through 13 games.
His point production has been essential for the Avs over his eight-year career in Colorado and is even more important for the 12th place Avalanche, as they fight to get back into a playoff spot.
