Matt Duchene and the Ottawa Senators are reportedly making progress towards a contract extension.

Duchene is currently scheduled to becomes an unrestricted free-agent at the conclusion of this season and quietly sits in the top-five of the NHL scoring list. The 27-year-old forward finished last season with 43 points in his final 44 games and another 27 in 21 games this season. TSN's Bob McKenzie has reported that his best guess is that Duchene will land an eight-year deal north of $8 million per year but south of $9 million.
