Duchene out 4 weeks

Coulda been worse...

Doug Pensinger

The Avalanche just announced via Twitter that Matt Duchene will be out four weeks after injuring his knee in a collision with teammate Jaime McGinn early in the first period of Saturday's game against the San Jose Sharks.

While it may seem 4 weeks isn't much, it's the rest of the season if the Avs dont make it past the first round of the playoffs. Without Duchene, that's going to be tough.
