Who's this guy?
What'd he do?
Not much, only act as the backbone of the Canucks' defence all season long. Hamhuis played all 82 games, and fell one point shy of tying a career high in points with 37 (only 4 of them were goals). He put up a +29 rating for the second straight season, this being a classic case of selectively flaunting plus/minus when it helps make my point (Aaron Rome was -4? Who cares, meaningless stat).
Hamhuis held down Vancouver's top defensive pairing — usually with Kevin Bieksa — and was mostly matched up against the opposition's top lines. He also saw some time on the second unit PowerPlay, and was a fixture on the league's 6th-best PK.
