Colorado Avalanche head coach Patrick Roy isn't ruling injured forward Matt Duchene out for the entire series with the Minnesota Wild. 

Although Duchene was not expected to play in round 1, he may make an appearance in games six or seven.

"We're very happy where he is right now. Now is he going to play in this series? We're not sure yet. We'll see. He won't play (Saturday)," Roy told The Denver Post.

Duchene has been out with a knee injury since March 29th after a collision with teammate Jamie McGinn.
