Zdeno Chara of the Boston Bruins, Mike Green of the Washington Capitals and Nicklas Lidstrom of the Detroit Red Wings are finalists for the Norris Trophy as the NHL’s top defenseman.
The league announced the finalists Thursday and the winner will be revealed June 18. Lidstrom is seeking his seventh Norris and fourth in a row.
The 6’9″ defenseman finished with 19 goals and 31 assists for 50 points this season for the B’s.
Reaction: It would be great if Chara could grab the award, but it will be hard to unseat Lidstrom. I think it’s a nice honor for Chara to be considered, but at this point they might as well rename the award to the “Lidstrom Trophy.” Come on Zdeno!
