The guy is so under-rated, there's only been 9 comments about this article on this board.

Edit: plus such a nice guy, shares half of his pairing's income with his lesser half Bieksa. LOL
Here's our best dman by far.

Getting deep in the playoffs last year, I thought to myself, 2 guys on this team can't be injured, 1. is kesler 2. is hamhuis. He is that important to the success of this team.

I remember on his draft day and the bio they showed of him mentioned how he had to overcome some kind of sickness when he was young.

They also showed how he was training with parachutes in the field, and is a very strong skater.

Really wanted the canucks to draft him that year, so its nice we eventually got him.
