The Colorado Avalanche Hockey Club announced today that forward Matt Duchene will be out indefinitely due to a hand injury suffered on Monday against the Calgary Flames.

Duchene, 20, is the Avalanche’s leading scorer with 47 points (21g/26a) in 57 games.  He also leads the club in goals and shots (141).  The Haliburton, Ontario native was selected to his first NHL All-Star Game this past January, where he scored a goal and also attempted the first penalty shot in All-Star Game history.

The Avalanche enters tonight’s contest against Pittsburgh having lost 280 man-games due to injury, third most in the league.
