Mathew Barzal #13 of the New York Islanders holds the puck with which he scored his first National Hockey League goal against the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden on October 19, 2017 in New York City.

Turris reportedly signed a six-year, $36 million extension with the Predators after the trade went through. He scored a career-high 27 goals last season. Duchene, 26, ends his Avalanche career after eight-plus seasons with the organization and heads to the Senators, who lost last season in overtime of game seven of the Eastern Conference Finals. Colorado gets prospects Samuel Girardi and Vladislav Kamenev and a 2018 second-round pick from Nashville, and prospect Shane Bowers, goalie Andrew Hammond and a 2018 first- and 2019 third-rounder from Ottawa.

The Avalanche received the biggest haul, getting back two players apiece from the Senators and Predators as well as three picks.

Matt Duchene has been traded. Hell play his first two games with the Senators against the Avalanche next weekend in Stockholm. "Its very weird, and obviously being pulled in a game, then to be playing my first two games against my old team is going to be pretty odd, but it was something I half-expected". There is a solid chance the puck-mover will slot right onto the Avalanche's blue line. Even so, Duchene's Colorado career ended with him finishing in the top 10 of many statistical categories in Avalanche history: Games played (6th), goals (4th), assists (6th), and points (6th).

Kamenev, 21, was a second-round selection of the Predators in 2014. During the 2014-15 season, Hammond helped launch Ottawa into the playoffs by posting a 20-1-2 regular-season record, all of which took place between February 16 and the regular-season finale on April 11.
