You can dodge the purpose of my post in reminding us all gently that typically defenseman stay in front of the net not behind it
The injury is here at 1:08


The thing is he was gaining the zone and realized he had support. He gained the zone successfully and saw he had a path to the net, and a player came from behind him in his blind spot. I don't see how this is being bad positionally. If Hamilton had the opportunity to do that, he would, and I'm sure you wouldn't be questioning his positioning. And the most obvious thing is, he made the rush realizing he had support. I don't think I've witnessed Rielly make a rush or a pinch when he never had support or was in a bad position to do so.
