Matt Duchene has recorded 10 goals and 17 points in 11 games during the month of November.

He has tied Claude Lemieux (1995-96) for the franchise record in goals for November and he surpassed current Colorado GM Joe Sakic (2000-01). The Avalanche have three games remaining this month, so Duchene could take full possession of the record if he continues to roll.

Matt Duchene isn't bothered by the trade rumors that have surfaced.

"Did it catch me off-guard? Yeah, a little bit," Duchene said Monday. "It probably was on my mind for about a day but I put it on the backburner after that. I want to be an Av as long as I can. I enjoy playing with this group and I believe we have a lot of potential in this room. But it's also a business and I understand that." GM Joe Sakic wouldn't comment on the rumors, but said he has been talking to other executives about improving his roster. Of course that isn't uncommon, especially since the Avalanche were struggling before winning the last three games.

Matt Duchene skated with Nathan MacKinnon and Gabriel Landeskog during Monday's practice.

Coach Patrick Roy will probably keep that loaded top line together for the start of Tuesday's game versus Philadelphia. "The reason is they're going to see a lot of ice time," Roy said when asked why centers Duchene and MacKinnon were on the same line. "They're young, and against the Rangers, they played 23, 24 minutes. I think these three guys are capable of it."
