Jack Hillen is yet another solid young defenseman for the New York Islanders (a bunch of these in a row it seems) who should contribute again next season.
Hillen seems like a good match to play with Travis Hamonic on the Islanders second defensive paring.
In just his second full season with the Islanders, Hillen has had two almost perfectly identical seasons. He upped his goal total from 3 to 4 and kept his assists at 18 to give him 22 points, one more than last season. He finished both seasons with a minus five rating and had one more penalty minute. I was honestly shocked how similar his stats were from season to season.
Hillen will give the Islanders a bit more experience at the blue line (if you count a 25 year old as experienced).
