The steady improvement of the centre back has been somewhat overshadowed by the hype surrounding the gifted Mark Wilson, but Hegarty was quick to laud the stopper.
"The fact that I haven't said particularly much about David does not mean I am not pleased with him because I am," said the Tannadice coach.
"He is one of those players who you just let get on with it.
"You offer him encouragement and one or two pointers but otherwise leave him to it.
"But there is no doubt he has taken on greater responsibility for us and become more self assured.
"He is also looking like a defender who can defend properly."
