Colorado Avalanche forward Matt Duchene is out for at least a week after he sustained an oblique injury against the Florida Panthers on Saturday.

Colorado Avalanche forward Matt Duchene is out for at least a week due to an oblique injury. 

This was confirmed by Adrian Dater of the Denver Post on Nov. 18. Duchene suffered the injury during the third period of the Avalanche's 4-1 loss to the Florida Panthers on Nov. 16. Dater wasn't able to add any more details, except to say that any oblique injury in general serves no purpose.

"The usual is all I can report right now: we'll know more tomorrow. I don't want to sound the alarm bell too much, because I don't know the extent of anything as I type. All I know is oblique injuries are not good for hockey players. They can linger on and on, and need full recovery because those are the muscles most used -- are close to it if they aren't -- in skating strides." 

In addition to Duchene, forward Alex Tanguay was placed by Colorado on its injured reserve, prompting the team to recall Brad Malone from the American Hockey League's Lake Erie Monsters

Avalanche head coach Patrick Roy said to "lose Duchene and Tanguay, it creates a hole. You don't replace guys like this. At the same time, it's an opportunity for others."

The loss of the two key players is just the latest blow for Colorado. The team is currently in a three-game losing streak since starting the 2013-14 NHL season 14-2. They will next take on the defending Stanley Cup champions, the Chicago Blackhawks, on Tuesday.

Prior to his injury, the 22-year-old Duchene had been the Avalanche's leading scorer. As of Nov. 19, he has 12 goals and eight assists for 20 points in 19 games.

Which new NHL rules will improve the game

Sep 12 2014 9:33am CDT | Source: Sportsnet.ca

We take you back to last March’s general managers meetings in Boca Raton, where that Jan. 18 goal in Detroit was the catalyst for one of a batch of rule changes announced this week by the NHL. Remember the puck that was deflected high into the netting, a good 25 feet above and behind Los Angeles goalie Jonathan Quick, then fell back down from the rafters onto Quick’s back, ricocheting into the Kings’ net? Inexplicably, with four officials on the ice, the only set of ...
