Not much new to see here, but it's nice to see him rated so highly, particularly since he didn't play the first 22 games of the season, as well as considering his company on the list.
If you don't want to click through, here's the best quote:
Merrill's offensive contributions continue to be significant, but it's his increased focus on the defensive end of the ice that is equally notable here. While he can often be found joining the play, Merrill's decisions in when to do so improves with each game. His solid defensive zone play, particularly in one-on-one situations, is also showing some improvement as well.
EDIT: Lee Moffie and Greg Pateryn are also listed as "Other Notables"
