Drew Doughty is undeniably one of the best defensemen in hockey. Just 25 years old, he’s already hoisted the Stanley Cup twice and won a pair of Olympic gold medals.
But one thing he hasn’t won is the Norris Trophy.
Why is that anyway?
Well, one possibility is that he hasn’t deserved to yet.
Or, maybe he has, but playing in Los Angeles has hurt his chances with Eastern-based voters.
Or, maybe he’d have a better shot if he scored more points, like recent winners Erik Karlsson, P.K. Subban and Duncan Keith.
Regardless, while he’d love to win the Norris one day (“there’s no doubt about it”), he’s “not going to do anything different to try” and win an individual award.
