Colorado Avalanche's Matt Duchene got traded in the middle of a game

The Ottawa Senators acquired Duchene on Sunday from the Colorado Avalanche via trade, while his now former team was playing the New York Islanders.

The trade was finalized as the visiting Avalanche battled the New York Islanders at Barclays Center, a game Colorado lost 6-4.

"I kind of knew before they told me", Duchene said, per Sportsnet. "I'll have a good story for people one day". This season, he has 10 points in 13 games. Captain John Tavares also has been red-hot, recording multiple points in five of his last six contests (14 overall in that span) after notching a goal and an assist against the Capitals.

Turris, 28, immediately signed a six-year, $36 million extension with the Predators once the trade became official. Rantanen, who registered 20 goals as a rookie last season, shares the scoring lead on the Avalanche with Nathan MacKinnon and defenseman Tyson Barrie with 12 points. A two-time QMJHL First All-Star Team selection (2015-16 & 2016-17), Girard accumulated 192 points (24g, 168a) in 190 career games with Shawinigan. 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 collection of draft picks gives the Avalanche two firsts, two seconds, and two thirds in the 2018 NHL Draft.

"We feel this deal brings us some top prospects as well as some high draft picks as we continue to build for both the short and long-term future", said Avalanche Executive Vice President & General Manager Joe Sakic.

Duchene left the Avs game against the New York Islanders mid way through the first period.

Matt Duchene has been the topic of trade rumors for the better part of a year.

Matt Duchene makes his long-awaited exit from the Colorado Avalanche organization. Hell play his first two games with the Senators against the Avalanche next weekend in Stockholm. Girard, 19, was a 2016 second round pick of the Predators and made his National Hockey League debut this season.
