Nah, he only signed for the rest of 2012. He's unrestricted now

Duchene has a contract with Ambri until the lockout ends https://twitter.com/officehcap/statu...66911891361792

Ambri lost 6-1 against Davos on Wednesday. Duchene played literally every second(!) shift but as winger. He did create some chances but I feel his team mates are just not on his level to benefit from that. He really protected the puck well tough and used his spin moves only when necessary. And god, has he great hands
Ambri is just badly coached IMO, terrible defensily, no breakout strategy...
Highlights:

Duchene hit the post at 2:20 and he hit the post another time but isn't in the highlights.

Holy Schneider looks absolutely god awful. I can't wait for the Nucks to trade Luongo and have it blow up in their face.

He's probably got an out-clause then.

I'm not sure what TVA Sports is but where is "home" for Duchene?

Are they talking about Ontario or Denver?

Have high hopes for Matt after watching him play very well in the Spengler Cup.

Agreed. And hopefully his infamous slow-start is a non-factor this shortened season since he's already been playing.
