Earlier in February I picked Erik Karlsson of the Ottawa Senators as the early Norris Trophy leader. It soon became clear that Karlsson was not going to repeat as Norris Trophy winner as he suffered an Achilles injury that will keep him out most (if not all) of the remaining season. The question was who would take over the lead. I think Kris Letang has taken over the lead. He currently has 15 points which is good for second among defencemen in the league and is posting a +7 +/- rating.
Letang is one of the top defencemen in hockey today. He is yet to have a Norris Trophy worthy season and perhaps this could be his season. He has the talent that he could win the award. It will be interesting if he can maintain this lead throughout the remainder of the season.
