Leading the pack for available defenders is Jaroslav Spacek of the Buffalo Sabres. Spacek has already tallied 4 goals this season and is 2nd in defensemen scoring with 6 points. With no Teppo Numminen in the line-up for the early part of the season, Spacek has really been able to open up his offensive play.
Brought back to North America from Europe, Cory Murphy has done some good for the Florida Panthers already this season. Murphy has a goal and 5 assists for the Panthers and has given the team an anchor from which they can create a little bit more up front.
Losses in Nashville have given Dan Hamhuis more opportunity and ice-time and he's rewarded the team with a goal and 5 assists. The Predators are known for their good young defenders and Hamhuis now finally looks to be coming into his own... just in time.
A picture-less Randy Jones is a benefactor of a revived Flyers team this season. The Flyers have been able to score a lot of goals and just about everyone has been able to touch the puck before it's gone in, so there's ample opportunity for some good point production from just about anyone. Jones has a goal and 4 assists so far this year.
Last season, the Sharks acquired Craig Rivet from Montreal for their playoff run and he's managed to stick around in the Shark Tank, recording 5 assists for his team this season.
