He did average nearly 20 minutes per night over the entire season, but not sure what he averaged in his 60 games with the Sens. Further, Leschysyn averaged just under 14 minutes per night, which is third pair minutes, not top 4.
You beat me to the punch, Fletch, but only because I went more in-depth.

To answer your question, Rachunek averaged 22:04 in ice time in October, 18:19 in November, 21:35 in December, 20:07 in January, and 18:05 in February. In March, he played 2 games with the Sens before the trade. So it looks like Rachunek was still getting 18-22 minutes a night, which would still be in line with a #3-4 d-man.
