Since then, the film has won several awards, including the Screen Actors Guild Award for Blunt in the supporting actress category. The dazzle of A Quiet Place: It was largely a near dialogue-less screenplay where sound was the motivating fear factor.

Duchene, 28, is set to be a restricted free agent after the season, and according to TSN, there have been no extension talks between the Blue Jackets and Dreger's camp.

Duchene was one of seven Senators players who were recorded in October criticizing the team's poor play and assistant coach Marty Raymond.

In 50 games this season, the former first-round pick - No. 3 in the 2009 draft - has posted 27 goals and 58 points and finishes his tenure in Ottawa with 50 goals and 107 points in 118 games after being part of a three-team blockbuster deal early in the 2017-18 season.
