Report: Duchene met with Canadiens, expected to visit Predators Thursday
The Matt Duchene derby is underway.
Duchene posted a point per game in the playoffs after collecting 12 over 23 regular-season contests with the Blue Jackets, the team that landed him from the Ottawa Senators before February's trade deadline.
The 28-year-old totaled 31 goals and 70 points across 73 games during the 2018-19 season.
He's coming off the final campaign of a five-year, $30-million pact inked while a member of the Colorado Avalanche in summer 2013.
