Last season was a particularly bad one for the then 29-year old bruising defenceman. He only put up a total of five points, notching only a single goal.
He wasn’t very good defensively and was a -12 to show for it.
But this season he started on the right foot and hasn’t looked back. He now has career highs all across the board. With seven goals and 18 points, this is by far his most productive season offensively.
One remarkable stat, which is often overlooked by analysts and writers, is his +2 goal differential while on the ice.
