Defensively and on the PK though? He always stuck to his man tightly, blocked a couple of shots, and looked like the fastest player on the ice. They basically had him roaming in the high slot on the PK and he was quick enough to get in every passing and shooting lane on the ice. Very noticeable in his d-zone coverage.
The only thing he doesn't do in that regard is go to the ice and block shots. If he does, it's only been once or twice. But yes, he is very good in his own zone. Was not that way when he showed up!
