Duchene was dealt to Columbus on Feb. 22 and immediately had to suit up against his old team. The he had to fly out with the Blue Jackets to San Jose the next day. Meanwhile the Senators made another trade with Columbus, this time for Dzingel who was traded on Feb. 24.

Needing to relocate his life to Ohio, Duchene chartered a jet with precious cargo onboard: His 6-week-old baby, his dog and his teammate. The caption says it all:

“Got my 3 kids into Columbus”

The baby is sound asleep, Dzingel is loving the whole experience — but that pup has seen some things.


This is the exact same look on my face when I took my kid on a plane for the first time, utter weariness.
