New dad Duchene sentimental ahead of Senators-Avalanche matchup

Whenever Matt Duchene plays the Colorado Avalanche, it will be special. Colorado drafted him third overall in 2009 and he spent eight-plus seasons with the organization before demanding a trade that sent him to the Ottawa Senators in 2017.

But Wednesday's game against the Avalanche in Ottawa will have tons of meaning for the Senators center. Not only is it his 28th birthday, but also it is the first time he is playing since the birth of his son on Jan. 9. Duchene missed Ottawa's three-game road trip through California to be with his wife, Ashley, when she gave birth to Beau.

Ottawa (17-24-5) won two of the three road games, including a 2-1 OT win at Anaheim the day Beau was born. The team dedicated the win to the Duchene, and the team posted on its Twitter page a picture of Colin White, who scored the winning goal, holding the puck with Beau's name written on it.
