Ottawa Senators acquire centre Matt Duchene from the Colorado Avalanche

As part of the deal, Turris will sign a six-year, $36 million extension with the Predators. Duchene was yanked from the game at the end of the first period, immediately after the trade was finalized. Duchene's first National Hockey League game was played the night Sakic's iconic number 19 jersey was raised to the rafters and in a cruel twist of fate, Sakic is the man who ultimately pulled the trigger on ending Duchene's career in Colorado. Barrie notched a point in nine of his last 10 games but has scored only two goals thus far this season - both of which were game-winners, giving him the team lead in that category. A two-time QMJHL First All-Star Team selection (2015-16 & 2016-17), Girard accumulated 192 points (24g, 168a) in 190 career games with Shawinigan. Ottawa sent center Shane Bowers, goalie Andrew Hammond, a protected first-round pick in 2018, and a third-round pick in 2019 to Colorado, which also acquired defenseman Samuel Girard and rookie left winger Vladislav Kamenev as well as second-round pick in 2018 from Nashville.

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

Matt Duchene has been the topic of trade rumors for the better part of a year. Colorado entered Sunday 8-5-0 after finishing with just 48 points last season, the fewest by a non-expansion team since 1998-99.

Hammond, 29, has spent the 2017-18 season with the Belleville Senators and is 2-2-1-1 in seven games this season with a 2.21 goals-against average and a.925 save percentage.
