This week we are hitting the second in our two-part series on multi-cat contributors. As a reminder the focus is on players who are contributing in hits and blocks, but also are putting up some level of shot production. We will not include PIM in this article.

 

In order to generate this list we needed a couple of criteria. Players were initially ranked by how many blocks and hits combined they contribute on average each game. They also had to maintain at least a shot per game average. The list below then is the top ten in this category in both the Western and Eastern Conferences…
