Recently acquired defenseman Adam Clendening has been working on his defensive game this year.

"Getting better body position is what I’ve really worked on the most because I’m not the biggest guy and I can’t bully guys around back there," says Clendening. "Working with (Rockford coaches) Ted Dent and Mark Osiecki down there, I’ve realized that when you get better defensively it leads to more offensive opportunities. The sooner you stop the other team, the sooner you have the puck." The Canucks acquired Clendening in a trade with Chicago earlier this week.
