Duchene Drawing A Comparison To Forsberg

from Adrian Dater of All Things Avs,

The fact is, Duchene is already a very good player, and he’s only going to get better. He’s got those amazingly quick hands of a great offensive player, and you can’t get a good bead on him as a defensive player because he’s always shifting around, never staying in one place for more than a millisecond.

He’s a little bit Forsberg-esque (and I don’t make this comparison lightly) in the way he shields defenders while carrying the puck. He doesn’t have quite the brute strength of Foppa and he doesn’t hold on to the puck as long. But he is able to keep control of the puck on his stick in a way that compares favorably to Forsberg.
