Duchene attends Avs camp with both sides reportedly 'committed to trade'
Matt Duchene: present.
Following a summer's worth of heavy trade speculation, the Colorado Avalanche forward has indeed reported to training camp.
However, he may not want to get too cozy. "Both sides remain committed to trade as best case and will continue to work on it," reports TSN's Darren Dreger, citing sources.
Duchene's name has been bandied about in the rumor mill for quite some time now, and he predicted after last season's trade deadline there was a "good chance" something would happen on that front this summer.
General manager Joe Sakic's asking price seems to have scared off potential buyers, but a strong showing in training camp may boost Duchene's value and get the phones ringing.
