Predators interested in Duchene

Add the Nashville Predators to the list of teams that have inquired about the services of Colorado Avalanche star center Matt Duchene.

Duchene, 26, has attracted the interest of a number of teams, including the Arizona Coyotes, Los Angeles Kings, Detroit Red Wings, Carolina Hurricanes and Montreal Canadiens, among others, but a trade is not believed to be imminent.

The Avs have entertained calls on Duchene and captain Gabriel Landeskog, as GM Joe Sakic is trying to reshape his roster.

On Tuesday night, during TSN's "Insider Trading" segment, Pierre LeBrun reported the Predators are also eyeing Duchene.

LeBrun indicated that Predators GM David Poile has "checked in once or twice on the availability of Matt Duchene" but talks have not progressed beyond that point, to date.

LeBrun wondered if the Predators would want to mess with team chemistry, having already completed two blockbuster trades in the last year, but if they found the right price for Duchene, Poile could jump on a move.

The Predators and Avalanche completed one trade already this season, when Colorado send forward Cody McLeod to Nashville for forward Felix Girard.

Duchene has picked up 15 goals and 14 assists for 29 points in 41 games with the Avs so far this season.
