147. Derian Hatcher

Derian Hatcher was not the type of Defenseman who was going to light the lamp on a regular basis but he was the type of blueliner who was going to keep you from doing it.

Hatcher’s career high in Points was 31 Points (he did it three times) but he was rock solid on his end.  Hatcher was an All-Star in 1997 and was named a Second Team All Star in the 2002-03 Season, which was also the campaign where he led the a National Hockey League in Defensive Point Shares.  In between those two honors, Hatcher would be a large part of a potent Dallas Stars team that won the Stanley Cup in 1999.  Hatcher was also a two time U.S. Olympian.
