ST. LOUIS - NHL Network analysts revealed their Top 20 NHL defensemen during a TV special on Saturday, and Blues captain Alex Pietrangelo made the list at No. 14.

Here's what had to say about Pietrangelo:

Pietrangelo, 27, scored an NHL career-high 14 goals last season to go along with 34 assists for 48 points, and has at least 37 points in each of the past six full NHL seasons. He's had at least 30 assists in each of the past four seasons, and is plus-56 in 539 NHL games. Pietrangelo led Blues defensemen in scoring in six of the past seven seasons. He had 51 points in 2011-12 and 2013-14, and was voted a Second-Team All-Star each time.

Earlier in August, in a list of the League's Top 20 wingers, Blues forward Vladimir Tarasenko was ranked fourth.
