Of our regulars, Upshall has the lowest GAON/60 at 1.72 to this point in the season. The year before, the only players on the team better than him in this stat were Dowd, Kapanen, and Coburn amongst the regulars.

Interestingly, Riley Cote is very good in this stat both years...again proving how quality he is in his role for this team.

My point being, Upshall deserves some serious credit defensively...as the opposition doesn't score when he's on the ice.
