Matt Duchene has finally heated up for the Ottawa Senators.

Duchene has produced four goals and three assists in the last seven contests. He only had two goals and four helpers in his first 21 games with the Senators after he was acquired from Colorado.

Matt Duchene is on the ice for warmups in ahead of Monday night's game against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Duchene took line rushes between Bobby Ryan and Mike Hoffman, which is a strong indicator that he will play despite dealing with the flu. He has only picked up 10 points in 26 games as a Senator, but has four points in his last two games. Expect to see him in the lineup tonight.

Matt Duchene (flu) is questionable to play Tuesday night.

Duchene didn't skate in the morning, but he is expected to take part in the pregame warmups. If he can play then Mark Borowiecki (concussion) will sit. It will be a game-time decision.
Jan 9 - 11:59 AM

Matt Duchene tallied two goals and added an assist in a 6-5 overtime win over San Jose on Friday night.

Duchene potted the game-winning goal just seven seconds into the extra session after the Senators rallied from a 5-2 deficit in the third period. He has five goals and nine points in 25 games with Ottawa.
Jan 6 - 11:04 AM

Matt Duchene scored his seventh goal of the season as the Ottawa Senators defeated the Columbus Blue Jackets 5-4 on Friday night.

Duchene's goal was his first since December 7th, a span of eight games. The recently acquired center played over 17 minutes and had three shots on goal. He now has seven goals and 16 points in 36 games this season split between the Colorado Avalanche and the Senators.

Matt Duchene insisted that he is comfortable with the Senators and feels that more points are around the corner for himself and his linemates.

Duchene has been skating alongside Mark Stone and Bobby Ryan. "People want to go 'ohhhh they only have this and this' but if you watch every single game, each play, and the end of the night you go holy (crap), how did they not have four goals as a line," he said. "That's been the way it's been. That's why we've stuck together. I mean, there's no other reason for it. If we weren't playing well together, we wouldn't be playing together. I think this is a line that can be effective going forward." Duchene has two goals on 44 shots and five points in 18 games since he was acquired by the Senators.

Matt Duchene scored a goal and an assist in a 4-3 overtime loss to the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday night.

It was his first multi-point game as a Senator and while it didn't result in a victory, he stood out for Ottawa. Perhaps the center is finally finding his sea legs with his new team. He now has 14 points in 27 games this season.

Matt Duchene scored a goal in a 2-1 loss to the New York Islanders.

Duchene was parked in front of the net where he picked up a rebound and buried his first goal as a member of the Ottawa Senators. It was also his first point in eight games with his new team. Coach Guy Boucher tried playing Duchene with Stone and Hoffman mid-game, a trio that has plenty of offensive flair. Duchene now has 11 points in 22 games this season.

Matt Duchene is still looking for his first point as a member of the Senators.

However, Duchene isn't concerned. "Honestly, I think the last game was tough," Duchene said of Ottawa's 3-0 loss to the Rangers on Sunday. "It was one of those games in this league, a bit ugly, but in the two prior ones (our line) did everything but score. I've said it many times, a season is full of peaks and valleys and 10 games from now, we could be having a totally different conversation." He doesn't have a point in five games since he was acquired from Colorado. Duchene also has a minus-6 rating and 21 shots on goal.

Despite not picking up any points, head coach Guy Boucher believes the combination of Matt Duchene and Bobby Ryan will give the Senators two number one lines.

"There’s moments where they absolutely dominate out there," coach Guy Boucher said. "You’re just hoping for that one to go in so they can breathe." It's a fair stance considering Duchene came close to getting three goals himself against the Arizona Coyotes. His first big chance went off an unsuspecting Luke Schenn, his second chance just slid under his stick with the net wide open, and he somehow couldn't corral the puck with the net wide open in the third period for his final big chance. Duchene has 10 points in 18 games this season, but zero since being acquired by Ottawa. If someone dropped him in your league, we'd pick him up right away. His bad puck luck can't go on for much longer.

Matt Duchene didn't record a point in his first game as an Ottawa Senator.

Duchene made his debut for the Senators on Friday afternoon, as they took on his former team, the Avalanche, in Stockholm, Sweden. Duchene finished the game with a minus-1 rating and two shots on goal in 16:44 of ice time. "It wasn’t as overwhelming as I thought," Duchene said. "It kind of felt like one of our burgundy and white (Avalanche intrasquad) games, but I didn’t have any burgundy or white on my team. It was outstanding. It was great to get that first one out of the way and get the win."

Matt Duchene is skating between Mike Hoffman and Zack Smith at Monday's practice.

Duchene joined his new teammates quickly after he was acquired from Colorado on Sunday night. He will make his Senators debut on Friday when they play back-to-back games versus the Avalanche in Stockholm, Sweden.

Matt Duchene has all week to mesh with the Ottawa Senators before back-to-back games on Friday and Saturday in Sweden against his ex-Colorado Avalanche teammates.

"It's very weird obviously to get pulled during a game and then be playing my first two games against my old team," the 26-year-old said while leaving the Barclays Center on Sunday night. "But it was something I half expected. I have nothing but good things to say about my time here.... It's very emotional to be saying goodbye to that." Duchene's diplomatic response follows a tumultuous summer where he was shopped around the league by the Avalanche.

Matt Duchene has been traded to the Ottawa Senators.

Duchene has finally been shipped out of Colorado and he has landed with the Senators in a three-way trade with Nashville involved as well. Oddly enough, he was traded during Colorado's game Sunday against the New York Islanders and left the ice during an injury stoppage. Ottawa sent Shane Bowers, Andrew Hammond, a first-round pick in 2018 and a third-round pick in 2019 to the Avalanche in the trade. Colorado also received Samuel Girard, Vladislav Kamanev and a 2018 second-round selection from Nashville in the deal. Duchene could slide into the spot that was occupied by Kyle Turris, who was sent to the Predators in the deal, between Zack Smith and Ryan Dzingel.
