Dahlin posted an assist, three hits, two PIM and a minus-2 rating in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Kraken.

While Dahlin helped out on a Tage Thompson goal in the second period, it was his defensive lapses in the third that helped the Kraken get back in the game. Dahlin is up to five assists, 16 shots on net, 18 hits and 12 PIM through 10 contests, but he also sports a minus-3 rating. With few better options on the roster, the first overall pick from 2018 should continue to see top-pairing usage even if the defensive struggles continue.
