I only seem to recall cursing at Diaz during one game this season. He had a few average games, but his ice-time has gradually gone up, so the coach is liking what he's seeing.

Defensively, he's been pretty fantastic. Offensively, he's been on and off (his hold at the blueline needs work), but hard to complain from a second year guy.

First game of the season, Diaz was given under 15-minutes. In his first 5-games, he average around 16 1/2 minutes. Over the past 5 games, he's averaging around 23 minutes.
