“Give us your best model pose Duche. Work it. Work it.”

It’s All-Star weekend which means thousands of opportunities for awkward as we send our most talented and slightly socially inept players to Carolina to hang out together.

It’s only fitting we start this weekend with our favourite awkward hockey player, Matt Duchene.

It’s great to see Matt dressed in an actual suit. This is the kid who wore a short sleeved dress shirt to his pre-draft media events and looked like someone’s accountant had accidentally wandered into an NHL Draft combine.
