from Mark Kiszla of the Denver Post,
In his 18th NHL season, Avalanche captain Adam Foote finally brought back a gift from a road trip that really pleased his kids: Avs rookie Matt Duchene, who immediately became the household’s No. 1 scoring threat in mini-sticks hockey.
Hey, this new addition to the family is better than a puppy.
“We adopted one, eh?” said Foote, who recently acquired the prized 18-year-old draft pick to live with two sports-loving young boys whom he and his wife already had at the kitchen table.
How’s it working out so far?
Well, Foote came home after work and discovered his favorite cushy seat had been claimed by a teenager on the very first night Duchene moved in.
“He’s sitting in my spot on the couch, which I wasn’t too happy about,” Foote said with a chuckle. “But we’ll figure it out.”
