After another big scoring year, Capitals defenseman John Carlson received votes again for the Norris Trophy.
Carlson finished 12th in voting, receiving two fourth-place votes.

Fox, who was on 99 of 100 ballots, narrowly beat out second-place Cale Makar (655) and third-place Victor Hedman (433). Last year’s winner, Roman Josi, finished 14th in voting after receiving a fourth place and fifth-place vote.
