The Gazette’s Pat Hickey writes today that Habs defenceman Mike Komisarek wanted to take on a bigger leadership role this season and he has done just that up to this point.
Komisarek has also established himself as a physical force along the blue line. His 61 body checks tie him for the NHL lead with Dustin Brown of the Los Angeles Kings. Komisarek has also blocked 56 shots, second only to Ottawa’s Anton Volchenkov.
"Komo’s been awesome," head coach Guy Carbonneau said. "He’s really taken a leadership role. He’s in his third year now (as a regular) and he’s a big part of our club."
