Are you talking about Jake Gardiner?

Tanev finished the year on the top shutdown pairing alongside Hamhuis and was on the ice for a grand total of zero even strength goals against in 14 games. That's impressive for anyone, let alone a guy without much pro experience that doesn't have NHL calibre strength yet.
