The Senators are off to a better-than-expected 3-2-1 start and on Wednesday night they did some team bonding with an early Halloween party.
The couple dressed as skeletons and Ashley’s costume featured a baby skeleton on her midsection to indicate that she’s pregnant. Duchene, 27, posted the photo below to his social media channels to make the news public.
Senators head coach Guy Boucher was asked about his team’s party after Thursday’s practice.
“I saw a few of those pictures, yeah,” Boucher said with a chuckle. “There were some quite funny ones in there. They really had some fun. Those moments are really important. They’ve given everything they got since the beginning and they’re responding in all the right ways, and so when they asked me to push practice back so that they would have everybody stay [at the party] long enough to create those funny moments, those relationships, that chemistry, instead of just showing up [for] one hour and leaving … I was real happy to do so. When they give, I give.”
