2016 Norris Trophy: Brent Burns finishes third in Norris Trophy voting

Brent Burns finished third in Norris Trophy voting on Wednesday night. Drew Doughty took home the award, given annually to the top defender in the NHL.

He scored 51 points, his second-highest total in a single regular season, and managed just one point as the Kings lost to the Sharks in five games. Burns scored 75 points in 82 games, setting a franchise record for the most points by a defender in a...

Burns, a budding herptologist, is...
