Hopefully he gets to continue playing with Frölunda. He needs to play games after last year where he not only missed a bunch of games due to injury, he couldn't do himself justice down the stretch due to coming back a bit early to help the team.

December 1, 3-0 Frolunda home win against Brynas.

14:14 of ice time for Duchene. No points, but he had a good game and was on the ice for the GWG. Also almost snuck one past the goalie after rushing down the left wing, shot went just wide though.

No, it was a save. Good shot but Holmqvist got a piece of it with his arm.

All of our centers bar maybe O'Reilly in the past 2-3 years have played with a multitude of wingers (sometimes, not great one's). O'Reilly seemed to have at least one half a season's worth of consistency to build chemistry (with Landeskog and Downie), which is huge in today's game, and look at the results.

I don't, can't, and won't blame Duchene given the intangibles he has been given (injury, team mates etc).

I have NO doubts that given 50% of a season with the same line mates, Duchene would strike awesome chemistry, as he did when Mueller played 15 odd games straight with him, and Fleishmann did for a decent period as well.

Sacco smacked Duchene on the last line. He threw him on Stazz wing. He threw him with a regressing Hejduk. Etc, etc etc.

Duchene has had a 55 point, and a 67 point season in his career. That's quality. He just needs to get back to that by touch wood, playing without injury, and getting some consistency.

I believe he'll be playing with Parenteau if and when Hockey is played again. That's great. A whole lot hinges on Duke though, and I hope his class shows through, and he bounces back before retirement.

Chances are better that Duchene at least gets "back" to where he was, before he gets worse.

Just read that too. That would be great; would love to see him here
Also, he could work on his offensive game even tough that team isn't that good at the moment.

I've got a question in the SEL do you only get a point on primary assists or is it like the NHL?

Well, he's done. Ended up with 14 points in 19 games. Hopefully it turns out as a positive learning experience for him.

Duchene got the GWG in his last game for Frölunda. He got 14 points in 19 games in Sweden. Hopefully this has helped him get his skating back for when NHL starts.

Is there some leagues where you don't get a point from a secondary assist?

Not that I know of. Sure, there are leagues where getting the secondary assist actually requires you to do something but touch the puck with your body or stick, unlike the NHL, but secondary assists are in every league in the world as far as I know.

Highlights. Duchenes goal is towards the end. Nice little deflection from a bad angle.

It was the Czech Extraliga that didn't count secondary assists for one season back in '07-08.

http://www.eliteprospects.com/league...ch&season=2007

After that, some North Americans seemingly got the impression that all Euro leagues don't do it.

Good now sign a rolling one week contract in Finland until/if the season is cancelled and then sign back on to play wherever.

Also bare in mind, it "normally" takes a players at least a WHILE to find their feet, build chemistry and strike up combinations, so in my opinion, 14 points in 19 games is outstanding.

He already has plans to sign with a Swiss team, probably Ambri.

Matt Duchene to Ambri

So Dutchy left Gothenborg to play for Ambri in Switzerland for the duration of the lockout:

Contract lasts until the end of December including an option for Ambri to extend the contract until the season ends. The contract gets cancelled if the lockout ends. Normal business I'd say.
