Predators' Matt Duchene: Picks up assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duchene managed an assist, two hits, two PIM and a minus-2 rating in Tuesday's 7-4 loss to the Panthers.

Duchene set up a Ryan Ellis go-ahead goal late in the second period, but that was all the offense the Predators mustered. The 30-year-old Duchene has just 11 points, 64 shots on net, 25 hits and a minus-12 rating through 29 contests. He will likely finish the year with a career-worst output.

Predators' Matt Duchene: Contributes to win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duchene scored a goal on two shots and had a pair of hits Monday in a 5-2 win over Chicago.

Duchene got things started for the Predators just over six minutes into the game, getting his stick on a Matt Benning shot for his first goal since Feb. 11. Duchene was playing in just his second contest since returning from a lower-body injury and was able to snap a point drought that stood at nine games. It's been a bit of a lost season for the 30-year-old Duchene, who has just three goals and five assists with a minus-12 rating in 24 games.

Predators' Matt Duchene: Returning to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duchene (lower body) will be activated from injured reserve for Saturday's game against the Hurricanes, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

Duchene will make his first appearance since March 4. Prior to his injury, the 30-year-old posted just three goals and eight points through 23 games. It's unclear where he'll slot into the lineup, but he'll likely center the second or third line.

Predators' Matt Duchene: Out 3-to-5 weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duchene (lower body) is out 3-to-5 weeks and was placed on injured reserve Saturday.

Duchene logged just 12:19 of ice time in Thursday's loss to the Panthers, so it's possible he suffered this injury during that game. The 30-year-old has recorded eight points through 23 games this year, and he'll aim to return in late March. Until Duchene returns, Mikael Granlund and Ryan Johansen are locked into the top two center positions.

Predators' Matt Duchene: Scoring drought continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duchene extended his current pointless streak to five games Saturday against the Blue Jackets.

Now with just eight points in 20 games along with a team-worst minus-12 rating, Duchene is currently on pace to put up the worst offensive totals of his career. The Predators are going to need much more from their No. 2 center if they expect to claw their way back into a playoff spot in the Central Division. Bench Duchene for now until he can find a way to right the ship.

Predators' Matt Duchene: Tallies go-ahead goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duchene scored a goal on his only shot in a 3-2 win over Detroit on Thursday.

Duchene put the Predators on top 2-1 with 41 seconds left in the second period, driving the net to finish off a 2-on-1 with Roman Josi. It was just the third goal of the year for Duchene, although all three have come over his last five games.

Predators' Matt Duchene: Dishes power-play assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duchene posted a power-play assist and went minus-3 in Monday's 4-1 loss to the Lightning.

Duchene dropped a pass back to Dante Fabbro, who struck for the Predators' only goal in the contest. The 30-year-old Duchene has been inconsistent through 12 games this season, notching two goals and four helpers. He has a minus-8 rating and 28 shots on net.

Predators' Matt Duchene: Gets off schneid with two goals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duchene scored two goals -- one on the power play -- in Thursday's 6-5 overtime win over the Panthers.

Duchene potted his first two goals of the season, including the game-tying power-play marker with 4:14 remaining in regulation. The two-time 30-goal scorer came into this one with a paltry three assists in nine games, but hopefully this breakout performance will get Duchene going.

Predators' Matt Duchene: Adds helper in Saturday win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duchene notched his first helper of the season in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Blue Jackets.

Duchene is looking to rebound from a mediocre showing last season that saw him notch just 13 goals and 42 points. Unfortunately, he's currently skating primarily on the Preds' second line alongside Erik Haula and Luke Kunin, which doesn't exactly project as a high-scoring line combination. That said, Duchene does see quality minutes on the top power-play unit with the likes of Filip Forsberg and Roman Josi, so hopefully he can add more than his fair share of points with the man advantage this season. For fantasy purposes, however, he's still a second- or even third-tier center option in most standard formats.

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

Duchene (undisclosed) is on the ice for Friday's practice, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

Duchene was sidelined for the first four days of camp with an undisclosed issue, but it appears as though he's now 100 percent healthy and ready for Friday night's intrasquad scrimmage. The 29-year-old will be looking to bounce back in 2020-21 after a disappointing 2019-20 campaign in which he managed just 13 goals and 42 points in 66 contests.

Predators' Matt Duchene: Labeled unfit to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach John Hynes deemed Duchene (undisclosed) unfit to practice on the first day of training camp Monday, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

Duchene might be finishing up his quarantine if he arrived to Nashville a little later than most teammates, but it's also possible that he's dealing with an injury. Either way, there has been no indication that his status for the Jan. 14 season opener against Columbus is in jeopardy at this point.

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.
