We’re hearing an awful lot about the impact that college defensemen are having on the professional game this season. Hockeytown has been buzzing about the contributions the Red Wings got from Dan DeKeyser (Western Michigan) and Brendan Smith (Wisconsin).

Lately, we’ve seen hockey fans in Boston amazed at what Torey Krug has brought to the Boston Bruins. With two goals and an assist in his first two NHL playoff games, following his call up from the Bruins AHL team in Providence, fans are now wondering if he’s become a permanent fixture on the blue line in The Hub.

As Spartan fans, we’re not surprised at all. For three seasons, we saw what Krug brought to the ice every night.

Additionally, The Hobey Baker Award top 10 was announced, and Torey is on that list as well.

He's definitely the Spartan's best player and, if he returns for his Senior season, may wind up setting some records that will never be broken by another defenseman. But the thing that has caught my eye more this year, is the way he's become a leader on the team.
