Numbers for Nerds:

Aaron Ekblad is on pace to score 48 points this season. The two most recent rookie defenseman to do that were Tyler Myers in 2009-10 (48 points) and Dion Phaneuf in 2005-06 (49 points). My takeaway from that: The Ducks will be calling about Ekblad's services once he is past his prime.
