This Matt Duchene thing is getting weird

Ok, we all know that Duchene is an Avalanche fan, which frankly makes him damn near perfect.  Well,  besides being a great player on the ice, apprently he's good in the classroom.

Matt Duchene, Brampton Battalion

 

 

Duchene attended Turner Fenton Secondary School in Brampton while playing for the Battalion.  He maintained a busy schedule of six courses including Grade 12 University Prep classes such as English where he has achieved an 85% average and Canadian Law with a mark of 82%.  Duchene has carried an overall average of 85% and has been described by teachers as being a leader and a role model in class, always enthusiastic giving 100% effort, and always willing to take risks and to help others.

So, OK then.  He's like the perfect guy.  But WAIT, there's more!

Duchene is the first member of the Brampton Battalion to win the Bobby Smith Trophy.  Previous winners include Craig Billington (Belleville, 1984-85), Nathan LaFayette (Cornwall, 1990-91 and 1991-92), Ethan Moreau (Niagara Falls, 1993-94), Brad Boyes (Erie, 1999-00), and Steven Stamkos (Sarnia, 2006-07). 

So yeah, that's probably going to put him in the good graces of someone that matters.  He also continues to do well in the playoffs, he scored another goal tonight and was named 3rd star in the latest playoff game against the Bulls. 

I'm trying not to fall in love.  Ferris Bueller would have something to say about my first 3rd pick... or something.
