In terms of forwards, this is where I want to see the comparison. Hendricks is probably averaging around 12-13 minutes a night with some games around the 14-16 mark and others around 9-11. It is a significant amount of icetime for a player of his caliber.... hence the question.

So only Forsberg, Beck, and Clune get less ice time per game than Hendricks. The perception that Hendricks is playing anything more than a 4th line role is countered by a little thing called reality.
