Erik Karlsson Really Should Have Won the Norris Trophy

Not to beat a dead horse, but... Last night, Drew Doughty won the Norris Trophy. It came as no surprise to anyone who had been listening to hockey media over the last year. Basically since last awards show, when Erik Karlsson won despite having fewer first-place votes, all hockey media have done is talk about how criminal it is that Drew Doughty had never won, despite finishing top-five in Norris voting twice in his career. He’d already won it in their minds without having played a single game of the 2015-16 NHL season. Most of the accolades people have used to give Doughty the award? His...

An honor just to be nominated: Nielsen, Tavares receive votes for NHL awards

Hey, I know that guy. If you didn't watch tonight's NHL Award Show, you didn't miss much as usual. There weren't a whole lot of upsets, the staging was more or less the same as it always is and the only person who couldn't land a joke was host, in this case, Will Arnett. Here's a list of the major award winners, each of whom can be read about at the SBN NHL home base, along with all of the other recipients. Hart: Patrick Kane, Chicago Vezina: Braden Holtby, Washington Norris: Drew Doughty, Los Angeles Calder: Artemi Panarin, Chicago Selke and Lady Byng: Anze Kopitar, Los...

Jamie Benn Named NHL First-Team All-Star for Second Time in Career

It is the third consecutive selection to the post-season all-star team for Benn and the second time in his career he received first-team honors. Dallas Stars captain Jamie Benn was named the best left wing in the 2015-16 NHL regular season at the conclusion of the 2016 NHL Awards on Wednesday, picking up his third consecutive nomination to the post-season NHL All-Star team. For the second time in his career, it was a first-team selection - not bad for a fifth-round pick from small-town British Columbia.

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. Despite having a relatively average season by his standards, Doughty takes home the award for the first time in his career. The phrase “lifetime achievement award” seems fitting here. 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...

Drew Doughty Wins Norris Trophy

Karlsson, Burns, and Doughty were the three finalists Drew Doughty beat out Erik Karlsson for the 2016-17 Norris Trophy. Karlsson led all defencemen in points, and was the first defenceman to post 82 points in a season since Brian Leetch 20 years ago, but Doughty earned the nod for his strong defensive play. He likely also received nods for not having won yet, as many media members seemed to start an "anyone but Karlsson" campaign for Norris as the season went on. Since both Doughty and Karlsson are essentially in their primes, I think we can expect to see the two face off for the Norris...

2016 NHL Awards Thread: Trophies, finalists, start time and how to watch

It's time for the NHL's annual awards show spectacle, this year hosted by Will Arnett, he of the generally decent 2012 NHL Awards skits. One knows they're in for a fun night when the host gives quotes such as, "I'm excited to host the 2016 NHL Awards because we all know in 2017 I'll be too busy celebrating the Leafs winning the Stanley Cup". Tonight's races may not feature any Winnipeg Jets horses, but there are a number of interesting narratives nonetheless: Will Drew Doughty finally walk away with the Norris Trophy, an award he's never actually been snubbed for? To what degree would...

Cult of Hockey poll: Which player should the Oilers select in the 2016 draft?

This is the time of year when 17 and 18 year old hockey players are compared to NHL greats, when fans, scouts and general managers compared this young defenceman to Drew Doughty and this young forward to Jamie Benn. Rarely is a discouraging word heard, but that was not the case last week on Jason […]
