Except he's not really a defensive defenseman. He's got great offensive instincts and he'll get to put them to use as he gains experience on the top pairing. He did have a 4 point night this year. You can't expect a sophomore defenseman to put up big points right away when he's getting 20-26 minutes a night in the NHL for the first time.
