The New Jersey Devils are starting to lean heavily on 22-year-old defenseman Steven Santini.

Santini logged 25:40 minutes of ice time in New Jersey's 5-4 shootout win on Tuesday. That was the third straight contest that he's gotten at least 20 minutes and it brought his season average up to 20:58 minutes. Not bad for a blueliner who entered the season with 39 NHL contests on his resume. "I’d say the last two games, the Ranger game (a 3-2 Devils win on Saturday night at Madison Square Garden) and this game, Steven has really taken a nice step," Devils coach John Hynes said. Santini's not much of an offensive contributor, though he does have two assists in six contests this season.

Steven Santini and Jon Merrill have made a nice defense pairing for the Devils.

The duo have been together since January. "We compliment each other pretty well, in terms of moving the puck and defensive positioning," Santini said. "So he's made the transition from Albany to here very easy for me, so I'm thankful for that. Ever since I got called up, he's been really good to me, and I think the off ice chemistry has helped us on ice, as well." Santini has two goals and seven points in 27 games so he really does not have much fantasy value at this time.
