As we Sens fans all know, and former Sens players wearing #15 don't, ice time is a good indicator of the skill and commitment of the members of a team. While thugs and one dimensional players serve less than 10 minutes a game, consistency and effort is rewarded.
Senators coach Cory Clouston has done a good job of spreading the workload around this season. Kuba (who’s played only one game), Phillips and Volchenkov are the only players averaging more than 20 minutes of ice-time a game with Phillips at 21:01 and Volchenkov and Kuba at 20:56. Nine other players have averaged between 17 and 20 minutes a game. Seven others are between 10 and 14 minutes.
