Prime Numbers: Dustin Byfuglien
Winnipeg, meet Dustin Byfuglien. He's a big guy that mans the blueline for the Winnipeg Jets. Here's a quick look at some of Big Buff's key statistics.

Dustin Byfuglien
defence, 2010-11 SEASON STATS
GOALS: 20 | ASST: 33 | PTS: 53
SOG: 347 | +/-: -2
245 – Overall draft selection of Dustin Byfuglien in the 2003 NHL Entry draft (Chicago Blackhawk’s 8th round choice). In the eighth round, Buff was a great pick, only six spots down from fellow Jets’ defenceman, Tobias Enstrom (239th overall), and only 20 spots ahead of recent addition Tanner Glass.

77 – Inches tall, or 6-foot-5. That’s how tall Big Buff is. Certainly comes by the nickname honestly.

20 – Goals scored by Byfuglien in the 2010-11 season, which is a career-high, and the most in a single season by a defenceman in franchise history.

53 – Points tallied in the 2010-11 season, also a career high, and a franchise high for points by a defenceman in a single season.

1 – Stanley Cup Ring. Won in 2010 with the Chicago Blackhawks. Buff played a large role in their Stanley Cup run, winning the ultimate prize with the Blackhawks alongside Jets’ Captain Andrew Ladd.

5 – Byfuglien signed a five-year contract extension on February 15, 2011, locking him in as a major part of the team’s core moving forward.

347 – Shots on goal by Buff in the 2010-11 season. This put him second in the league, only Alexander Ovechkin had more shots on net last season.

8 – Powerplay goals scored by Byfuglien in the 2010-11 season. Big Buff has a big shot, which played a key role when the team was on the man-advantage.

23:18 – Average time on ice per game for Dustin Byfuglien last season, which ranks him second on the team, averaging just 23 seconds less than Tobias Enstrom.
