Kris Russell is a top four defenseman this season after being an afterthought heading into training camp last season.
Russell came into last season as a blueliner just trying to make the Flames but he impressed enough that he averaged 23:08 minutes of ice time in 68 games. "I would say they have confidence in me," Russell said. "At this level, you’ve got to consistently play hard and get better every year. It doesn’t matter who you are, if you’re not helping the team and not an effective player, you’re not going to play. I want to keep working hard and keep getting better. I wanted to come in and not be that guy that just had a good season last year and floats into camp the next year. I was working hard all summer and wanted to set an example." Russell had 29 points in 2013-14 and should get around the same in 2014-15. Draft him accordingly. Oct 11 - 5:43 AM
