The consistent performance of Justin Faulk and breakout campaign of Andrej Sekera have helped an inexperienced and hastily formed Carolina Hurricanes' defense stay afloat in 2013-14.

Carolina ranks 19th in the NHL with an average of 2.81 goals against per game and 56.4 shot attempts (Corsi) against per game.

By no means is the unit an elite one, but considering the late warning of Joni Pitkanen's season-long absence, they've held together admirably well in most of the Hurricanes' 72 games to date.

How have each of the eight regular NHL defenseman still with the team performed by the numbers in 2013-14? What grades do each deserve for their overall impact and consistency? A player-by-player breakdown lies on the coming slides.
