Jackman had 15 points this season. He played defense with Kevin Shattenkirk [44 points] and Alex Pietrangelo [46 points]. His highlight of the 2014-2015 season was on March 10th, when the blues were tied with the Winnipeg Jets, 4-4. We needed the extra point after a scrappy game, and Jackman delivered... From center ice [Watch clip].
With Jackman leaving, we can look at players like Robert Bortuzzo; 26 years old and 6'4. Many fans were disappointed that he didn't get to play in the postseason, as Marcel Goc, Zbynek Michalek, and Carl Gunnarsson did. All great defensemen. Now we can stop worrying about a defensive lineup for a while. Stay tuned for an article on Allen vs. Elliot.
