Matt Duchene was drafted 3rd overall in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft by the Colorado Avalanche. With the high selection came high expectations. Early in the season, the talk in Colorado was about goaltender Craig Anderson and rookie Ryan O'Reilly who was selected in the 2nd round after Duchene. That has now changed.
With all of his hard work, Duchene is starting to get the recognition he so rightly deserves. Although Matt Duchene has a respectable 8 goals and 17 points on the season, it his recent play that is drawing attention. With 6 goals and 4 assists in his past 8 games, Duchene might be starting a roll similar to the one which Steven Stamkos started after his slow start in the 2008-09 season.
Here's a short list of some of his available cards so far in the 2009-10 season:
