Matt Duchene scored a goal and added an assist for Canada in its 5-1 win over the U.S. at the World Hockey Championships in Russia.

Duchene has always been a very effective international player and he's proving to be so again. We expect Duchene to have a big season in 2016-17 as he came on strong after a slow start to the campaign.

Tyson Barrie will be a key restricted free agent for Colorado this off-season.

He is coming off a two-year, $5.2 million contract which paid him $3.2 million in 2015-16. This will probably be a situation that ends up going to salary arbitration. Barrie racked up 53 points in 80 games a year ago and he posted 49 points in 78 contests this past season.

Avalanche captain Gabriel Landeskog doesn't think his team deserved to be in the playoffs.

The Avalanche were neck-and-neck with the Wild for the final Wild Card spot in the West before they completely collapsed down the stretch. "A team that had the chance coming down the stretch and instead of winning six in a row or five in a row, or five out of six, we started losing six in a row or five out of six," Landeskog said. "That stuff isn't going to get you in the playoffs, and when you do that, you don't deserve to be in the playoffs."

Zach Redmond picked up his second goal of the season during Saturday's 5-3 loss to Anaheim.

Redmond finishes the season with just six points through 37 games. He sat for several extended stretches, so it does not appear that he factors into Colorado's plans moving forward.

Varlamov stopped 26 of 31 shots, including five of seven on special teams but it wasn't enough. His season ends with a 27-25-3 record with a 2.81 GAA and .914 save percentage.
