Andrew Bodnarchuk(7) Manchester Monarchs

Andrew Bodnarchuk

Los Angeles Kings‘ 6th year defenseman Andrew Bodnarchuk(7) was the AHL plus/minus leader at the end of the 2013/2014 regular season with a mighty +43 rating.

He also posted career high numbers with 8 goals and 24 assists for 32 points and had a new record mark of 129 shots on net.

The 5’11” 190 lbs. d-man is considered somewhat small but plays with plenty of snarl and a gritty edge that’s fully effective in all three zones.

He signed a two-year extension heading into the current campaign after coming off a successful first season with affiliate Manchester Monarchs.

Previously he spent his initial four campaigns in the Boston Bruins‘ organization, mostly with Providence Bruins.

He’d only played in 5 NHL games with no points and a -2 rating.

The 25-year old has already appeared in an eye-popping 412 minor league contests and with plenty of determination seems like he could find his way into a bottom six role at some point.
