266-Hits thrown by Komisarek in 2007-08 to lead all NHL defensemen and trail only league-leader Dustin Brown of the Kings, who dished out 311 hits.

38-Nights out of the 75 he was in uniform that Komisarek led the Canadiens in the hit department.

36-Games in which Komisarek led the Habs in blocked shots this season.

41-Blocked shots by Komisarek in 12 playoff games to lead the league through the first two rounds of the 2008 playoffs.

196-Consecutive games played by Komisarek as the Habs’ iron man since Jan. 14, 2006, until suffering an injury against the Bruins on March 22, 2008, that caused him to miss the last seven games of the regular season.

9-Plus-minus differential posted by Komisarek, who led all Canadiens defensemen in that category in 2007-08.
