News: Brodin was plus-3 with a goal and an assist in Sunday night's 8-1 onslaught over the Jets.
Impact: Brodin drove home a slap shot in the contest that couldn't end fast enough for the Jets. A high degree of shooting accuracy from defensemen can be considered a bonus, yet Brodin set the bar high with a 10.8 percent rate in 2013-14, only to see that figure drastically plunge last year at 3.2 percent. It might be challenging for the 22-year-old to replicate his plus-21 rating from last campaign, but Sunday's game is obviously a great sign that Brodin and company are ready to rock with the regular season drawing near.
