Nashville Predators defenseman Roman Josi is the winner of the 2020 Norris Trophy. Paul Coffey, one of the stars of the Edmonton Oilers’ dynasty teams in the 1980s, announced Josi the winner on Zoom. The NHL Awards show was hosted from the Edmonton bubble where the Stanley Cup Final is being held.
The Norris Trophy is “awarded annually to the National Hockey League’s top defense player who demonstrates throughout the season the greatest all-round ability in the position.”
Josi edged out the Capitals’ John Carlson, who was runner up, and the Lightning’s Victor Hedman. Surprisingly, it wasn’t close.
