Boston Bruins – Torey Krug
With injuries decimating the Boston Blue line, the Bruins had to resort to playing 3 rookie defensemen at one time: Dougie Hamilton, Matt Bartkowski and Torey Krug. Krug was the most unheralded and anonymous of the trio, but he stepped up and became a player that Claude Julien couldn’t take out of the lineup, right till the end. He played 15 games, scored 4 goals and 2 assists and had a +5 rating. Not bad for an undrafted player with 3 regular season games of NHL experience.
