They do have 11 of the 25 players with the worst +/- after all, and are the only team without a single point.
Halifax is by far the worst team in the league this season, but Abeltshauser has been our best defenceman when healthy. He needs to work on his defensive game, but it's not nearly as bad as the +/- shows.
He came here as a 17 year old, and had to learn a new style of play on smaller rinks, as well as a new culture to live in. Yet, right from training camp, he's been outplaying 19 year old veterans. All this while battling injuries pretty much as soon the pre-season began.
He's a bit raw, but he's been very impressive so far.
