For those of you who don’t already know (or haven’t read this morning’s Denver Post) Matt Duchene is now a part of everybody’s favorite place for breaking news, Twitter. @Matt9Duchene is his handle. I personally love it when famous people join up, especially hockey players. Coyotes enforcer Paul Bissonnette is a Twitter Superstar, the same goes for guys like Dustin Brown and Joffery Lupul. They do it to bring fans closer to the game they love, to get past the “We gave it 110% tonight’s” and “We have to move our feet more’s”. Through this, we’ve learned about Bissonnette’s hated of PT Cruisers and Brown’s love of the Peanut Butter Stomp. But I’m getting off the point here, why did our boy Dutchy join twitter? Adrian Dater did our work for us and scooped out why…
“You look at our team, and we’ve got so much talent and guys that are worth watching, and it’s discouraging to go out on a Wednesday night and see 12,000-13,000 fans,” Duchene said after Wednesday’s practice at Duluth Ice Forum. “I thought to myself, ‘What can I do, other than continuing to try and help the team on the ice, to help it off the ice. This was something that came right away into my head, to try to reach out.”
