Matt Duchene made lifestyle adjustments this offseason with improvements on the ice in mind.

The talented forward had just 28 points after recording 67 the year before. It was an embarrassment that caused some dramatic changes. "I've changed everything - eating, stuff in the gym, stuff I do before games, everything," Duchene said. "I eat fish almost every day, taking some different supplements and stuff. What I wanted to do this summer was learn more about my body and what made it tick. I was doing some stuff that worked for some guys, but it didn't work for me. I'm the type of guy who doesn't accept failure, and last year obviously didn't go the way I wanted in the second half, so it was time to make some adjustments."
