After a strong 2018-19 season, Washington Capitals defenseman John Carlson finished fourth in Norris Trophy voting. The news was made public in an NHL release during the league’s award show in Las Vegas.
35-year-old Mark Giordano of the Calgary Flames won the Norris after receiving 165 of 171 first-place votes. Brent Burns and Victor Hedman were the runner ups.
But the story for Capitals fans is just how close Carlson was to becoming a Norris Trophy finalist for the first time in his career.
