Predators' Matt Duchene: Scores in home win over Stars
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duchene scored a power-play goal in a 2-0 win over Dallas on Thursday.

Duchene only has 13 goals this year but has scored five of them with the man advantage, so he's making the most of his opportunities on Nashville power plays. He'll be looking forward to hitting the road for the next five games, as nine of Duchene's 13 goals on the year have come away from home.

Predators' Matt Duchene: Sets up tying goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duchene posted an assist in Monday's 8-3 loss to the Oilers.

Duchene applied pressure on the forecheck and won the puck, setting up Calle Jarnkrok's goal at 2:28 of the second period to tie the game at two. With the helper, Duchene reached the 40-point threshold (12 goals, 28 assists). He's added 132 shots and a minus-3 rating in 62 appearances this year.

Predators' Matt Duchene: Earns helper in overtime win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duchene notched an assist in Thursday's 4-3 overtime win over the Flames.

Duchene snapped a four-game point drought when he earned the secondary helper on Mikael Granlund's overtime winner. With the assist, Duchene is at 39 points and 130 shots through 60 games this year, far below his 31-goal, 70-point pace from a season ago.

Predators' Matt Duchene: Bags a goal and a helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duchene snapped a four-game pointless streak with a goal and an assist in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Blues.

Now with just 37 points in 54 games this season, Duchene is on pace for a 55-point season, a fairly significant step back from the 70 points he posted last year. While he hasn't been the savior the Preds hoped he'd be, from a fantasy perspective Duchene is still a decent play most nights, centering the team's second line with Filip Forsberg and Kyle Turris.

Predators' Matt Duchene: Turns defense into offense
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duchene notched an assist and three hits in Tuesday's 2-1 overtime win over the Jets.

Duchene made a big defensive play in overtime, which led to Mikael Granlund's game-winning tally. In 49 contests, Duchene has 11 goals and 35 points. He's added 110 shots on goal and 35 hits this season. While the offensive pace isn't what we've come to expect from the 29-year-old, he could still conceivably reach 50 points.

Predators' Matt Duchene: Sets up Forsberg's wizardry
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duchene recorded an assist in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Oilers.

Duchene got the puck to Filip Forsberg, who proceeded to score the Predators' first goal lacrosse-style. In his last 10 games, Duchene has two goals and eight helpers. The 28-year-old is up to 31 points, 95 shots on goal and a minus-4 rating through 42 contests in his first season with the Predators, which has seen him fail to replicate last year's 70-point pace so far.

Predators' Matt Duchene: Scores 10th goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duchene scored a goal on his only shot and had four hits in Thursday's 5-2 win over Chicago. He also won six of nine faceoffs (66.7 percent).

Duchene extended Nashville's lead to 3-0 late in the first period and that goal ended up being the game-winner after Chicago made a late rally. Duchene is on a four-game point streak (two goals, four assists) and is up to 10 goals and 30 points in 40 games for the season.

Predators' Matt Duchene: Back from illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duchene (illness) had one assist and three shots with a minus-3 rating in Tuesday's 6-2 loss to Boston.

Duchene was back in the lineup after missing two contests with his illness, and he was able to log a regular shift in his return. He assisted Filip Forsberg's power-play goal in the second period, giving Duchene five points (one goal, four assists) in his last three games. The 28-year-old has just two goals since the start of December, however, and has nine goals and 20 assists in 39 games on the season.

Predators' Matt Duchene: Ready to rock Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duchene (illness) will play in Tuesday's game versus the Bruins, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

Duchene missed the last two games due to an illness, but he's back in the fold. The 28-year-old pivot's goal-scoring has gone down this year with just nine tallies through 38 games. He'll look to get back on track as the Predators look to claw their way back into the playoff picture, and he's getting plenty of opportunities with an average of 3:10 on the power play per game.

Predators' Matt Duchene: Out again Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duchene (illness) will not suit up for Sunday's contest in Anaheim.

Duchene missed both games this weekend with his illness. The 28-year-old forward has nine goals and 28 points in 38 games this season. His next chance to suit up will be Tuesday against the Bruins.

Predators' Matt Duchene: Out with illness Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duchene (illness) will miss Saturday's game against the Kings.

Duchene and Dante Fabbro (upper body) are both out for the contest. Expect Yakov Trenin to enter the lineup in a bottom-six role, while Craig Smith could be in line for second-line minutes Saturday. The Predators play in Anaheim on Sunday -- it's unclear if Duchene will be well enough to play in time for that contest.

Predators' Matt Duchene: Snags pair of power-play points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duchene scored a goal and added an assist, both on the power play, in Wednesday's 4-2 loss to the Stars.

Duchene cashed in on a five-on-three situation, and then set up Dante Fabbro's five-on-four tally in the first period. That was all the Predators could muster against the Stars' Ben Bishop. Duchene has three multi-point outings in his last six games, and 28 points (nine goals, 19 helpers) through 38 contests overall this year. The 28-year-old has added 87 shots on goal and a minus-3 rating.

Predators' Matt Duchene: Collects pair of assists in OT loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duchene tallied two assists, one on the power play, in a 5-4 overtime loss to Ottawa on Thursday.

Held to a single point in his previous eight contests, it was nice to see Duchene find his way onto the scoresheet in Thursday's game, even if it came in a loss. His assist on Ryan Ellis' power-play goal in the second period was Duchene's first power-play point in 17 games, dating back to Nov. 7.

Predators' Matt Duchene: Ends goal drought
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duchene opened the scoring in Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Sabres.

Duchene needed just 57 seconds to finally snap a five-game goal drought, which was his second-longest as a member of the Predators. He also ended a four-game point drought, as Duchene's production has waned of late. The offseason acquisition has just one multi-point game since Nov. 4.

Predators' Matt Duchene: Pockets assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duchene notched an assist in Friday's 3-0 win over the Hurricanes.

The helper came on Austin Watson's second-period tally. Duchene has three points over his last two games, and he's reached the 20-point plateau in the process. He's added 52 shots on goal, and five of his points have come on the power play.

Predators' Matt Duchene: Enjoys multi-point game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duchene had a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime loss to Vegas.

Duchene scored on his only shot of the night, finding the net on a one-timer from the right faceoff dot to give the Predators a 3-2 lead early in the third period. The 28-year-old has seven goals and 19 points in 23 games as a first-year Predator.

Predators' Matt Duchene: Scores late in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duchene scored a goal on two shots in Thursday's 6-3 loss to Vancouver.

Predators' Matt Duchene: Posts helper in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duchene recorded an assist and two shots on goal in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Canucks.

Duchene fed Calle Jarnkrok for the Predators' first goal in the game. The center has 15 points (five tallies, 10 helpers) in 17 games. He's looking to be worth every penny of his $8 million AAV contract in its first year. Duchene has reached 70 points twice in his career -- he's got a good chance of making in three times at that mark in 2019-20.

Predators' Matt Duchene: Nets power-play tally
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duchene scored a power-play goal and had four PIM in Thursday's 9-4 loss to Colorado.

Duchene counted his fifth goal of the season early in the second period, staking the Predators to a 3-2 lead. He's got three goals in his last two games after going through an eight-game goal drought. Three of his five goals so far have come via the man advantage. The 28-year-old had a career-high 31 goals in 73 games last season with Ottawa and Columbus and is capable of hitting that mark again this year.

Predators' Matt Duchene: Scores twice in lopsided victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duchene scored two goals, one with the man advantage, in Monday's 6-1 win over the Red Wings.

The two points were Duchene's first in four games, pointless in three games back since missing one game with a lower-body injury. It was just his second power-play goal of the season, a low output considering Duchene was averaging 3:18 of power-play ice time. With only four goals so far in 2019-20, a hot start in the assist column has Duchene sitting at 13 points through 14 games.
