    Here is part two of my previous post (forwards). However, because these rankings are on defensemen and not forwards, I changed the system just a tad, to highlight some of the areas that I personally can make a d-man standout.


    CRITERIA:


    - Played in at least 6 round-robin games during the KC3 round-robin
    - Player is ranked at the position they are listed as on the site (RD or LD)
    CATEGORIES:


    IN: Puck Possession, OUT: Goals​
    Offense - Points Per Game, Assists Per Game, Plus Minus Per Game

    Defense - Takeaways Per Game, Interceptions Per Game, Own End Efficiency


    Team Play - Puck Possession Per Game, Penalty Minutes Per Game, Win Percentage

    I substituted Goals Per Game out for Puck Possession per game. Granted, defensemen who score a lot of goals should be really valuable, but it's very uncommon and I wanted to fit Puck Possession in because it is a good representation of the player's style. Usually, defensemen with high PP, tend to be the "alphas" of the D pair. It's not always the case, but it tends to be true most times. If a defenseman has low PP, usually they are the shutdown d-man of the pair and tend to have higher overalls in the defense categories, than the offense. And as you will see, the top guys do exceptional in both categories.

    **Just a reminder that these rankings are based purely on stats, not skill**
