Mark Borowiecki leads all defensemen in hits over the last three seasons with 868.
That's an impressive amount of hits for the stay-at-home defenseman. Roman Polak, who is second in that category, finds himself with 760 hits in the last three seasons. Luke Schenn (714), Alexei Emelin (701) and Radko Gudas (699) round out the top five. Even though he racks up the hits, Borowiecki won't have any fantasy value going forward. Aug 20 - 7:30 PM
