Niklas Hjalmarsson has taken off several practices due to bumps and bruises, but he's still played in 68 of Chicago's 70 games.
"It's just mental, I think," said Hjalmarsson. "You just try to handle the pain in a good way." Hjalmarsson is 14th in the NHL with 143 blocked shots this season and is third on the team with a plus-14 rating. He doesn't have much fantasy value, but he's an important part of the team.
