Duchene (lower body) has been designated for injured reserve, per the NHL media site.

EDGE Analysis

While the team has not provided any additional details regarding Duchene's lower-body issue, the fact that he is on injured reserve likely confirms the initial reports of a long-term absence. At a minimum, the all-star center will miss the next three games. Prior to getting hurt, the center racked up 34 points in 29 games and was sporting a career-high 19.4 shooting percentage. Chris Tierney should see the biggest uptick in ice time, as he figures to assume a top-six role in Duchene's stead.

According to coach Guy Boucher, Duchene (lower body) "could be" dealing with a long-term injury, Ken Warren of the Ottawa Sun reports.

It'd obviously be a huge blow to the Senators and fantasy owners alike if Duchene's sidelined long term, as he's been Ottawa's best forward this season, leading the team in scoring with 12 goals and 34 points in 27 games. Another update on the 27-year-old's condition will be released in the coming days.

Duchene fashioned a pair of even-strength assists in Friday's 6-4 road loss to the Stars.

EDGE Analysis

It took Wednesday's road game in Minnesota to put an end to Duchene's three-game point streak, but it was right back to business for the 2014 Olympic gold medalist in this one. Duchene's propensity for multi-point games makes him quite valuable in the fantasy realm. He's collected two points in six games and there have been four more outings where he's added three combined goals and assists.

Duchene recorded three assists in the win over New Jersey on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Duchene had been sputtering recently, having only recorded one point over his last four games, but he got back on track Tuesday against the Devils notching three assists in his team's blowout victory. While this marks the fifth consecutive game without a goal for the center, his three-assist effort has him in the top 50 in the league in terms of scoring. The 27-year-old will look to break that goalless streak against the Golden Knights on Thursday.
