Highlights
3-time NL Media All-Star Team 3

Bezina is a big all-around defenseman who does a lot of things well. Owns a bomb of a shot that is especially useful on the powerplay. Uses his size to dominate opponents physically. Also boasts leaderstip qualities, but can make some mistakes with the puck.
