Well deserved. Probably my favorite player on the team. For those who haven't been following the Amerks, in my opinion..

An argument can easily be made that he's the best skating defensemen on the team. Not just for his size, but overall. The man can move and never gets beat outside by speedier forwards like you often see with big defensemen.

He's physical. Not in a hugely flashy way, but he clears the crease and takes the body effectively behind the net.

He defends his teammates. Has to come their aid several times this season after questionable hits. The Fitzgerald fight was one, and another was after the late hit that gave Turnbull his concussion.

He makes a great breakout pass and always finds the open man. Hard and on the tape every time.
