Loved his game against the Bruins.

I'm really, really impressed with his strength too. He's not a huge player but it is obvious his core strength is solid.

A couple of times tonight when he was carrying the puck whether in the defensive zone or the offensive he'd protect the puck with one hand while leaning, pushing off his checker for space with the other. It was all strength in both protecting the puck and the pushing off, fight for position.

Didn't lose the puck either time. When he was doing it early in the season I was a little worried about it, but with his skating ability and core strength, well, I haven't seen him lose that battle yet.

What I like about the PK situation is that he is actually surpassing his hype. He's better than advertised in so many ways. He's a very solid two-way defenceman, who I think won't go through the 2nd year struggles of Myers or Schenn because of his progression through juniors and AHL.
