Haliburton’s Hurricane Matt Duchene training in La-La land

BY TERRANCE GAVAN – SHRIKE.ca Sports – June 21/12

Haliburton, ON – Matt Duchene is training in Los Angeles this summer with his trainer Andy O’Brien and while that may  not come as news to most of the Highlands locals, a number of fans around North America were wondering what Duchene was doing in a sky box with Sid Crosby during the Stanley Cup finals recently.

Denver Post beat writer, Adrian Dater explains:

You may have noticed, during the Stanley Cup final, a shot of Matt Duchene hanging out in a luxury suite at the Staples Center with superstar Sidney Crosby.

This is because of two things:
– Duchene and Crosby share the same Beverly Hill-based agent, Pat Brisson.

– Duchene is now living in L.A. for part of the summer to train with Crosby and his trainer of the past several years – Andy O’Brien.

Duchene said he is feeling better than he’s ever felt, thanks in part to O’Brien’s workout regimen. He has been doing different kinds of exercises to build up his “core” better.

A video of the training regimen posted by O’Brien is below:
