There Are Young Defensemen And Then There Is Nick Lidstrom

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

The NHL is teeming with talented, young defensemen, including a group in their early to mid-20s that features Duncan Keith, Brent Seabrook, Drew Doughty, Shea Weber, Mike Green, Tyler Myers and Erik Johnson.

It’s an impressive list of players who will compete annually for the Norris Trophy for years to come.

And then there’s the league’s oldest defenseman, 40-year-old Detroit Red Wings captain Nicklas Lidstrom, who continues to be one of the best in the business.

Any doubts about his elite status following his slow start last season have been put to rest. Lidstrom, in his 19th season, is off to one of his best starts. He will take a career-best 11-game points streak into Wednesday’s game against the St. Louis Blues at Joe Louis Arena.
