Jay Bouwmeester has been a perfect partner for the talented Alex Pietrangelo.

Since Bouwmeester arrived last season and was paired with Pietrangelo, the 23-year-old defenseman has played like a Norris Trophy candidate. Bouwmeester uses his size, speed and smarts to slow the game down and takes a bit of the load off of Pietrangelo to move the puck up the ice. Blues' coach Ken Hitchcock thinks the twosome can even play better. :I think they're still learning how to play with each other. Before Bo, Petro has always played with a player who defers the puck to him. This is the first time he's had to share the puck with somebody, and I think they're learning to play off each other still. I don't think they're at the level they're going to be at, because I think there's still some indecision on who's going and who's hanging back. Bo's always been the jumper. Here, they have to read off each other and they're still learning to do that." Bouwmeester is having a wonderful bounce-back season. Grab him if he is available.
