Avs players take ice as they wait for NHL season

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - After 27 hours of exhausting travel as he made his way from Italy to Denver, Matt Duchene was ready for only one thing - hockey.

Soon after landing back in town, the Colorado Avalanche forward made his way to the rink.

Even in his jet-lagged condition, Duchene was on the ice with 16 of his buddies for an up-tempo scrimmage Tuesday.

And very soon, they could be lacing up their skates in games that count again.
