Knee injury sidelines Avs' Duchene at least four weeks
The Colorado Avalanche announced Friday that Matt Duchene will miss at least four weeks with a left knee injury.

Duchene sustained the injury in the first period of Thursday's game against the Phoenix Coyotes when he checked Phoenix defenseman Rostislav Klesla. The 20-year-old Ontario native played just 2:23 in Thursday's contest, the 200th game of his career, before heading to the locker room because of the injury.

Duchene is the Avs' second-leading scorer with 12 goals and 24 points this season.

Quote of the Day

I'm hoping Bob [Murray] didn't go out and get Dany Heatley just to get someone. I'm sure he's excited and motivated.
