Matt Duchene: (Groin) Expected To Play Thursday Staff

Update: Duchene (groin) took part in Colorado's morning skate and is expected to play Thursday against the Flames.

Recommendation: Duchene missed the Avalanche's last game Tuesday, but fortunately it appears he was only dealing with a minor setback. Duchene has been held scoreless over his last three games, but he has already tallied multiple points five times this year, so most fantasy owners will probably be able to find a spot for him in Thursday's lineup.
