A closer look at Alex Biega’s turnaround in the 2017-18 season

A closer look at Alex Biega’s turnaround in the 2017-18 season

“Alex Biega knows what he is,” said Canucks head coach Travis Green. Biega knows that he’s a depth defenceman, the type of guy called upon to sit in the press box for long stretches while other defencemen play big minutes in the NHL and AHL. He’s an example to the younger players off the ice, where his work ethic never changes even when he’s not playing. When he’s on the ice, Biega lives up to his nickname as the Bulldog, chasing down puck-carriers and finishing his checks.

Numbers Never Lie: The statistical oddity of the Alex Biega and Derrick Pouliot pairing

What if I told you that the Canucks best defence pairing last season was Alex Biega and Derrick Pouliot? That sounds wrong, doesn’t it? Biega is a journeyman defenceman who certainly tries hard, putting out the consistent effort and edge that has granted him the nickname of The Bulldog. Pouliot, meanwhile, is a former top prospect that never quite found his game with the Pittsburgh Penguins and has immediate and obvious defensive deficiencies, despite his clear skill.
