If you are the Colorado Avalanche, your morning went like this:
Matt Duchene is out indefinitely with a hand injury [link]. He is the Avs leading scorer this season (21 G, 26 A). The Avs are in the midst of a franchise-worst losing streak (8 straight) and play against Pittsburgh tonight. He was hit by a shot in Monday’s 9-1 loss to Calgary.
Duchene charmed us to pieces at the All-Star Game and we were trying to think of a suitable nickname for him. I kinda want to call him “Duche,” which isn’t very nice. But we already have a Matty D around the WUYS offices (who is also fond of too many cocktails after a Superskills Competition). Suggestions? Perhaps this victory dance with Paul Stansy will inspire… the only thing we love more than hockey is choreographed dancing.
Hurry back, insternicknamehere. We’ll be waiting.Tags: colorado avalanche, matt duchene
