Colorado Avalanche forward Matt Duchene took over the club's Twitter account on Friday to answer fan questions ahead of Opening Night at Pepsi Center.

Tweet from @Avalanche: Hey #Avs fans, @Matt9Duchene is here taking your questions. Use #NextEra to submit!

Tweet from @Avalanche: Yeah! Can���t wait for the game tonight.

Tweet from @Avalanche: Yeah, for sure. It���s a big honor and responsibility. I���ll do my absolute best to help the team on and off the ice.

Tweet from @Avalanche: Getting back out in front of our fans, for sure. Also just getting back on the ice in a game situation with my teammates.

Tweet from @Avalanche: He���s great! He���s missing the cottage back in Canada, but he loves his back yard here in Denver as well.

Tweet from @Avalanche: Nashville, for obvious reasons haha.

Tweet from @Avalanche: The guys have been awesome. I think they���re going to add a real great element to our team this season.

Tweet from @Avalanche: Not my pizza!

Tweet from @Avalanche: Yes, of course! My jersey is framed in my rec room at my cottage.

Tweet from @Avalanche: Tippin��� Point, for sure!

Tweet from @Avalanche: Ju-jubes.

Tweet from @Avalanche: Our post-win song on the plane this year is going to be Huntin, Fishin and lovin every day��� and our post-loss song is absolutely nothing, ha

Tweet from @Avalanche: Right now, I���ve got songs by @LukeBryanOnline, @FLAGALine, @coleswindell and @JustinColeMoore.

Tweet from @Avalanche: You bet! ��

Tweet from @Avalanche: There are so many great ones, but one guy that always gives me trouble is Quick.

Tweet from @Avalanche: Both were amazing. Winning an Olympic gold medal was unreal, but playing in front of our home fans in Toronto was pretty incredible as well.

Tweet from @Avalanche: Favorite album: 21st Century Breakdown.Favorite song: Boulevard of Broken Dreams.

Tweet from @Avalanche: Not a big hot dog eater (not great for the diet) but I���m a just ketchup type of guy.

Tweet from @Avalanche: We���re feeling good! Can���t wait to get started tomorrow night.

Tweet from @Avalanche: Right now, it would be May We All by @FLAGALine.

Tweet from @Avalanche: Sakic and Forsberg, of course!

Tweet from @Avalanche: Not a lot, but because of the World Cup making my season start earlier I ramped things up a little quicker in August.

Tweet from @Avalanche: Depends. I like the new stuff but some of it is really cheesy. It���s always tough to beat the real classics, though.

Tweet from @Avalanche: Wrist or snap shot.

Tweet from @Avalanche: .@bigbangtheory, @Nashville_ABC and @Suits_USA .

Tweet from @Avalanche: Yes, absolutely! All of us take great pride in opening the season on a good note.

Tweet from @Avalanche: It was @ericchurch at Red Rocks back in May of 2012.

Tweet from @Avalanche: Tough to argue with Patrick Kane right now.

Tweet from @Avalanche: Keep your stick on the ice! ��

Tweet from @Avalanche: The game obviously was awesome, but playing guitar with @leebrice was also a highlight.

Tweet from @Avalanche: .@bernienicholls9 is from my hometown and wore white skates. I was going to switch back to black after a year of wearing them. (1/2)

Tweet from @Avalanche: My junior teammates told me I couldn���t because I wouldn���t look the same. So I kept them and haven���t switched since. (2/2)

Tweet from @Avalanche: Haha, I���m not sure but somebody much better looking than I am! ��

Tweet from @Avalanche: Iron Man.

Tweet from @Avalanche: I caught a 4lb walleye.

Tweet from @Avalanche: Haha, no just the one in Brampton, Stu!

Tweet from @Avalanche: TAG on Larimer St. is definitely one of our favorites! Make sure you check it out.

Tweet from @Avalanche: Every year my fiancee and I watch the Harry Potter marathon that���s on TV.

Tweet from @Avalanche: Yeah, her dad is a friend of ours and a big promoter of our community.

Tweet from @Avalanche: It���s @AaronRodgers12.

Tweet from @Avalanche: Also @BringerOfRain20 for my @BlueJays!

Tweet from @Avalanche: I have two:1. Being drafted by the #Avs.2. Winning the Olympic gold in Sochi.
