"I’ve been inserted onto the second line and I think me, Willy and Fish have shown some real chemistry out there," Bartley said. "Things are feeling good and hopefully they keep me there." Bartley seems to understand the gravity of the opportunity, "They’re really putting a lot of trust in me putting me on the second line, that’s a lot of responsibility." The nearly 27 year old defensema has one goal and 18 points in 84 career NHL games since 2012.
