He played 12 minutes last game. Thus far, he's been used as third pairing Power Play Defenseman which is a role I feel he excels at and helps the Blackhawks the most. I think his ice time can increase and am interested to see how he does with Hammer on the 2nd pair. His skating and poise with the puck really opens things up and allows our star forwards to make plays. I dunno why some are upset that he's not the next Erik Karlsson or leading the league in blocked shots. That's like being upset that Kane isn't a gritty third line Center. It's just not who he really is. To say that not being that type of Defenseman means he doesn't belong on the Hawks is ridiculous. The Hawks are built on speed and quick puck movement. Leddy fits into that team very well. The Hawks aren't the St. Louis Blues. And that's fine with me.
