Duchene scored a goal and picked up a helper in a 3-2 overtime win over the Stars on Friday. That marks three games in a row where Duchene has tallied two points, and the fourth time in six contests. Though the Senators aren't going to sniff the playoffs, the 27-year-old seems to be enjoying his time with the team. Since being traded from the Avalanche he has 39 points in 56 games.
Duchene registered two assists and four shots during Tuesday's 7-4 win over Tampa Bay. After a slight adjustment period to his Ottawa surroundings, Duchene has proven to be a key offensive contributor with 14 goals and 17 assists through his past 31 games. He's locked into a top scoring role and projects to continue providing solid numbers for fantasy owners. It's also worth noting that Duchene is now on track to post his highest point total since marking the scoresheet 70 times in the 2013-14 campaign.
Duchene scored two goals, including the game-winner with three minutes left in the third period, while adding four shots, one hit and a plus-1 rating in Monday's 5-3 victory over the Panthers. He now has 21 goals on the season, the sixth time in his career he's hit the 20-goal mark. It took a while, but Duchene has found his rhythm in Ottawa, scoring 10 goals and 20 points in 20 games since the beginning of February and positioning himself as the centerpiece of the Sens' offense for 2018-19.
Duchene recorded a goal and a power-play assist during Monday's 3-2 win over Dallas. Duchene had scored only three goals without registering an assist through his previous seven games, so this was a welcomed multi-point outing. He's still played extremely well over the past two months with 12 tallies and 14 helpers through his past 27 contests, though. The strong turnaround makes Duchene worth owning in the majority of settings. Just note that his minus-20 rating since joining Ottawa isn't likely to significantly correct itself moving forward.
Duchene scored a goal Saturday in a 5-3 loss to Philadelphia. The slick pivot finally looks comfortable on Ottawa ice and his production shows that. Duchene has 12 points, including five goals, in his last 10 games and 23 (10 goals, 13 assists) in 23. But as good as he has been, Duchene only has four power-play points in those 23 games. He has so much talent, but he always seems to leave you wanting more.
