Avalanche sends Duchene to Sens in three-way deal

Matt Duchene

Duchene left the Avs game against the New York Islanders mid way through the first period.

Turris, who was a potential unrestricted free agent at the end of the year, has also signed a six-year extension worth $36 million with the Predators. He scored a career-high 27 goals last season.

Duchene, who has another year-plus at a $6 million cap hit remaining on his current deal, became a common topic in trade rumors over the past year as the Avalanche fielded offers for one of their best players.

Matt Duchene won't stick around where he's not wanted. Colorado gets two prospects and a 2018 second-round draft pick from Nashville, and prospect Shane Bowers, goaltender Andrew Hammond and 2018 first- and 2019 third-round picks from Ottawa.

Senators general manager Pierre Dorion says the trade to bring Matt Duchene to Ottawa was a "no- brainer".

Mobile and Sprint finally, officially, say they definitely won't merge
If T-Mobile and Sprint had aligned, they would collectively rise to the number three provider slot in the USA mobile market. It is still possible that Sprint will reject the new terms or decline investing any more effort into the potential merger.

The Avalanche received the biggest haul, getting back two players apiece from the Senators and Predators as well as three picks.

The Avs late Sunday night were scheduled to take a red eye flight to Sweden where they will play back to back games against Ottawa beginning Friday.

"Being pulled in a game, then to be playing my first two games against my old team, is going to be pretty odd", Duchene said.

Bowers, 18, was Ottawa's first selection (first round, 28th overall) in the 2017 draft. Girard, 19, was a 2016 second round pick of the Predators and made his National Hockey League debut this season.

The 26-year-old centre has recorded 10 points (four goals, six assists), in 14 games for the Avalanche this season. Kamenev, 21, was a 2014 second-round pick by the Predators and was playing for Milwaukee Admirals of the AHL and will likely head to San Antonio.
