Avs get haul for Duchene in blockbuster trade

Matt Duchene

Multiple reports indicated the Senators are trading center Kyle Turris to the Predators. The Avs traded Duchene in the middle of a game, which is something that hasn't happened in the league in about five years.

Duchene, selected by the Avs with the No. 3 pick in the 2009 draft, played in 585 games with the Avalanche, producing 178 goals and 428 points.

Duchene won't have to wait long to face his former team - the Senators' next two games are in Sweden against Colorado as part of the NHL Global series.

Chiefs have prepared for Cowboys' scheme, not a particular running back
The NFL said about 100 players have been suspended for approximately 500 games over the past season and a half. Elliott's ex-girlfriend, Tiffany Thompson, said he physically abused her in Columbus, Ohio, last year.

"We feel this deal brings us some top prospects as well as some high draft picks as we continue to build for both the short and long-term future", said Avalanche Executive Vice President & General Manager Joe Sakic.

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

The speedy Duchene never quite fully lived up to the expectations placed upon him as the team made the postseason just twice during his eight-plus years in an Avalanche sweater. Rantanen, who registered 20 goals as a rookie last season, shares the scoring lead on the Avalanche with Nathan MacKinnon and defenseman Tyson Barrie with 12 points.

Matt Duchene has been the topic of trade rumors for the better part of a year. Girard, 19, was a 2016 second round pick of the Predators and made his National Hockey League debut 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.

Bowers, 18, was Ottawa's first selection (first round, 28th overall) in the 2017 NHL Draft. The effort also gave the 27-year-old six tallies and seven assists during his seven-game point streak.

USA sets final tariffs on softwood lumber from Canada
The duties will push lumber prices even higher, so the biggest impact may be on American builders and new homeowners. The U.S. industry wants Canada to limit its share of the U.S. softwood lumber market strictly below a set level.
