Hockey's Future did a Calder ranking and Brodin is ranked #9. Behind defenders Schultz in Edmonton, Hamilton in Boston, and Dillon in Dallas, among a bunch of (overrated) forwards.

9. Jonas Brodin, D, Minnesota Wild
Drafted 10th overall (1st round) in 2011

Brodin, like Dillon, makes his debut in the poll this month. While he has flown under the radar in terms of Calder Trophy consideration, a good case can be made that no rookie has been as important to his team as the Wild defenseman.

Among rookies, Brodin is second to Schultz in ice time, averaging nearly 22 minutes a night.

While Brodin's offensive numbers are limited (three assists in 18 game and -1 plus/minus), only high profile free agent signee Ryan Suter sees more ice time for Minnesota than the 19-year-old from Sweden.

Brodin skated in 12 games for the Wild in February and was +2 with 1 assist while averaging 22:30 minutes per night.
