Maybe the best defensive-defenceman in the league... Comes with
loads of experience and played a big role on both the 1996 Canada Cup and
1998 Olympic teams... Leads the NHL in average shifts per game this
season... sixth in the league in minutes played per game... Won Stanley Cups
with Avs in '96 and 2000... Missed the beginning of the season after
undergoing off-season surgery on his shoulder... Defensive abilities reflected
in the fact he was plus-93 for his career going into this season...
Sticking his nose in.
Biggest beak in NHL.
Has never had a penalty shot in the NHL.
