Every Wednesday during the season, NHL.com Correspondent Brian Metzer will provide you with an in-depth analysis of fantasy defensemen in our weekly segment: "On the 'D'-fence." From updated defensemen rankings to guys you should keep a close eye on and much more, Metzer will be your fantasy d-man expert all season long.
The NHL Trade Deadline is upon us and by 3 p.m. on Wednesday afternoon, a number of players will have changed zip codes.
In recent years, the weeks leading up to the deadline have contained as much, if not more action than deadline day itself and that was again the case this season. Of importance here are the 11 defensemen that have changed teams over the past two weeks.
