Blueliner – a hockey defenseman. When the players line up at center ice, the defense guys are closer to the blue line.
I found this out because the Kings just acquired a blueliner, Keaton Ellerby, from the Florida Panthers. This is because Matt Greene and Willie Mitchell are still injured and it’s hurting us. (Sorry about the pun.) Get better, boys, we need you desperately!
