Brooks Orpik currently sits ninth in the league with 24 blocked shots heading into Tuesday night's action.
He has 14 hits in nine games which is a lower total than you might expect him to have, but he isn't letting those numbers get to his head. "Blocking shots is, I think, the same as hits," Orpik said. "If you approach a game looking for that kind of stuff, you usually get caught out of position, or doing something you wouldn't normally do. You just have to be patient. Some games, you just have more opportunities for both. Some games, you might not have any." The Pittsburgh blueliner is averaging 23:43 of ice time per game. He has no points and a plus-1 rating as well.
