Ranking the Top Candidates for the 2015-16 Norris Trophy

November 18th, 2015 by Steve Macfarlane Leave a reply »
The Norris Trophy given to the best defenseman in the NHL is a tight race, but a sophomore leads the race for the hardware.

And it's not the rookie defenseman who won the Calder Trophy last year.

There is plenty of competition in the 2015-16 season. A few of the familiar names are making a case for another piece of hardware, while some young and hungry competitors are having strong starts to the season.

Points is obviously a big part of this award, but merit is given to successful defending as well as the ability to play in all situations—including the less glorious penalty-kill unit.

Here are a few honorable mentions and the top seven candidates so far this season. Click ahead to see where your picks line up.
