DUSTIN BYFUGLIEN RUMORS

Dustin Byfuglien Playing Two Roles

from Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun, I asked Byfuglien a simple question about his expectations for the season.

The Winnipeg Jets aren't sure how to use their most valuable tool

When Dustin Byfuglien was drafted into the NHL, it was as a defenseman. Then Chicago made him a forward, except when they needed an extra D-man.

Byfuglien breaks out the dance moves

Dustin Byfuglien came to play and he came to dance on Friday night.

He’s been outstanding for the Jets from the blue line, and is among the NHL’s top offensive-defensemen. Which is why it’s odd that the Flyers would be...

Dustin Byfuglien's weight is headed in the right direction

Dustin Byfuglien's weight is a topic the hockey community discusses nearly every summer.
