Josi is a flat-out stud. In the last three years, Josi has seen his point totals creep up from 40 to 55 to 61. It’s not often that you see a defenseman second on the team in total points, and he easily could have been first falling 3 points shy. Josi has been consistently involved in the offense and it doesn’t seem like that will change.
Not only does he put up big numbers but he is a leader too as he was appointed an alternate captain last year. Said Coach Laviolette, “His leadership inside the room and on the ice really shined last year as the person and player that he was and he fits into the group that we already have in place.”
We might as well be calling him Roamin’ Josi since he slices through opponents to make it into the offensive zone. He’s fun to watch and he helps the team win. Josi seems like a logical candidate.
