Unlike Bjornot, Sean Walker has a good amount of NHL experience under his belt.

Walker’s first taste of the NHL came in 2018-19 when he suited up for 39 games for the Kings. During that time, the native of Keswick, Ontario, wasted little time showing just how strong he was defensively.

In those 39 games, Walker recorded 40 blocked shots and dished out 43 hits. The latter is especially impressive given that Walker’s 5-foot-11, 195-pound frame doesn’t make him the most intimidating figure on the ice. Nevertheless, Walker is fearless on top of being defensively sound.

Look for more of this from No. 26 this season.
