(Colo.)- Avalanche Trade Matt Duchene To Senators

(Colo.)- Avalanche Trade Matt Duchene To Senators

Turris, 28, immediately signed a six-year, $36 million extension with the Predators once the trade became official.

The Avalanche and Senators announced the trades after Duchene was pulled out of Colorados game at the Islanders midway through the first period.

Interest rates up for first time since 2007
Bank governor Mark Carney signalled on Thursday that rates were likely to rise twice more over the next three years. My concern is the impact a rise in interest rates will have on those who are just about managing.

The New York Islanders attempt to extend their season-opening home point streak to six games when they host the Colorado Avalanche on Sunday. Barrie notched a point in nine of his last 10 games but has scored only two goals thus far this season - both of which were game-winners, giving him the team lead in that category. Colorado receives prospects Samuel Girard, Vladislav Kamenev and a 2018 second-round draft pick from Nashville and forward Shane Bowers, goaltender Andrew Hammond, a 2018 first-round pick and 2019 third-round selection from Ottawa. "We've said all along that we wanted to be patient and wait for the right deal, and this is the opportunity we feel is best for the organization". Rantanen, who registered 20 goals as a rookie last season, shares the scoring lead on the Avalanche with Nathan MacKinnon and defenseman Tyson Barrie with 12 points.

Duchene is coming off a disappointing season on a team where just about every player struggled. The Senators will take on the Avalanche in Stockholm, Sweden, on Friday and Saturday.

A ballistic missile was put on display as part of the celebration. Not surprisingly, it hasn't stopped them in the slightest. Iran's leaders say they are proud of its missile program.

Girard, 19, was a second-round pick of Nashville in 2016. Kamenev, 21, was a 2014 second-round pick by the Predators and was playing for Milwaukee Admirals of the AHL and will likely head to San Antonio.

Four of the game's five goals at that stage had been scored during odd-man situations, so in a contest with twists and turns galore, that was naturally the end of that. That's way down from the previous season, in which he put up 30 goals and 29 assists in 76 games.
