Nick Leddy improved his game with his stint in the AHL during the lockout.
Leddy wanted to improve his defense as his offensive game has been strong during his two NHL seasons. "He's got a better stick, he's coming up with some loose pucks and when he starts the rush from our end he can alleviate that pressure and skate by people," coach Joel Quenneville said. "He's been good on power-play entries as well; and he's got a good shot. He's been playing different kind of minutes against different kind of guys. We're comfortable against any kind of matchup with him out there but there's been overall improvement in his game." Leddy picked up the overtime winner on Sunday and now has a goal and five points in six games. Grab in if you can as there are not a lot of scoring defensemen in the NHL at this time.
