#95 Matt Duchene

Matt Duchene has finally started to find his rhythm on the ice. Being paired with some younger talent for a lot of the quarter in the absence of Filip Forsberg, Duchene has a new energy about him and is feeding off the younger players.

Duchene posted eight goals and eleven assists in 19 games played. Averaging nearly 20 minutes TOI per game, Duchene leads all forwards in this category.

After taking some stupid minor penalties early in the season, Duchene has also been playing smarter and only committed one minor penalty during this quarter. In the +/- column, Duchene is a +4 which is a direct result of the offensive mindset of the newer additions to this Nashville Predators lineup.
