Time to sign the NHL transaction is about to begin, perhaps some teams will need to give themselves the right defenders.
We provide a list of some of the top defenders for you to have more specific information.
Tyler Myers, Winnipeg Jets
Myers (6-foot-8, 229 pounds) had 31 points in 80 matches for Jets Winnipeg last season. His ability to build and skate has made him a dominant defender. A good player with his right hand, winning 265 points over 635 matches, Myer is an effective rookie with 48 points scored in the 2009-10 season. He won the Calder Cup as a freshman in the tournament that season.
Jake Gardiner, Toronto Maple Leafs
Gardiner, 29, is probably the best defender on the market. He scored 30 points in 62 matches last season. Gardiner has missed 20 matches this season because of a back injury and there was no similar jump in skating when he returned to the playoffs. The future of Garder in Maple Leafs is difficult because of NHL’s limited salary.
Anton Stralman, Tampa Bay Lightning
Physical injuries prevented Stralman from participating in 14 of Lightning’s last 17 matches and all four play-offs. His 17 points were composed of two goals, 15 assists. Stralman has played 47 games in five seasons with Tampa Bay, and although he is about to turn 33 on August 1, he may still be required to play because of his veteran experience and powerful shots. the fruit with his right hand.
Niklas Kronwall, Detroit Red Wings
The 38-year-old is still working effectively, his 27 points get three goals, 24 assists have led Detroit’s defense this season quite firmly. On average, Kronwall spends nearly 20 minutes of ice time per game. Red Wings general manager Steve Yzerman said he hopes Kronwall will return for NHL season 16 and will give him all the time needed to determine if he wants to continue his career or not. It is possible that if Kronwall continues to play, he will continue his career in Detroit.
