Erik Karlsson Norris Trophy Predictions

norris-trophy-predictions-2012

"If I had a vote,” said a well-respected NHL scout, “Karlsson would be my vote [for Norris Trophy].”

The last 3 years the members of the Professional Hockey Writers' Association have not selected the highest scoring defenseman to win. Last year Nicklas Lidstrom of the Detroit Red Wings won the award with a -2 rating.

If Karlsson ends up leading NHL defensemen in scoring by 20 points or more, he will become only the fourth blueliner to achieve hockey domination. Bobby Orr did it six times. Denis Potvin and Paul Coffey did it once each.

My vote for the 2012 NHL best defenseman of the year is Erik Karlsson of the Ottawa Senators for Norris Trophy.
