But it is not the Finn you expected! Number 4: Haydn Fleury

Haydn Fleury‘s inclusion on this list may leave some of you puzzled. Fear not, for even defensemen need recognition.  He is a substantial presence on the Hurricanes’ blue line, despite being the seventh D, and a reliable substitution for Trevor Van Riemsdyk or Jake Gardiner on the third defensive pairing.

He has also banked two goals this season, finally breaking his ninety-five game scoring drought that started during the previous year. At 23-years old, he is still relatively young for a defenseman and has plenty of room to grow. With such great mentors as Brett Pesce and Dougie “Doooogie” Hamilton, Fleury should flourish into an incredible skater when he hits his prime, especially now that he has found his first career NHL goal.
