Jay Bouwmeester ranks 12th in the league in total ice time this season.

Bouwmeester has logged 845:27 total minutes and is averaging 23:29 minutes per contest. Although he's been getting a lot of work, he's not particularly valuable in standard fantasy leagues due to his mediocre offensive production. He's got just nine points in 36 games in 2015-16, which is actually a significant step up from his 13 points in 72 contests last season.

He had two goals and 13 points in 72 contests last season after recording 37 points in his previous campaign. He feels fine now though and it wouldn't be shocking to see him bounce back in 2015-16.
