Evening Line

“Playing defense in the NHL is very difficult and playing at 19 years old is even more difficult. But as long as I’ve been around the game, even as far back as when I played, I’ve never seen anyone handle the position like Justin Faulk has as a teenager.”

“We’ve had defensemen come into the League like [Bobby] Orr, [Denis] Potvin and [Phil] Housley, who were great offensive players, but I’ve never seen a player play so well defensively and offensively at his age.”  I can’t describe it well enough to tell [fans] what they’re in store for having this great young player.”

-Jim Rutherford, GM for the Carolina Hurricanes.  More on the Hurricanes from Mike Morreale of NHL.com.
