Matt Duchene has rejoined his teammates and participated in a scrimmage with them on Tuesday.

Duchene had to travel for 27 hours to get to Denver. "I'm tired from the jet lag and the thin air kind of hit me, but it's great to be back," he said. He had four goals and 14 points in 19 SEL games and participated in the Spengler Cup. While his European numbers should be taken with a grain of salt, the fact that he has played high-level hockey recently should serve him well over the initial weeks of the season.
