Norris Trophy finalists: Canadiens' P.K. Subban, Penguins' Kris Letang, Wild's Ryan Suter

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Montreal's P.K. Subban, Pittsburgh's Kris Letang and Minnesota's Ryan Suter are finalists for the Norris Trophy, given annually to the NHL's top defenceman.

Each is a Norris finalist for the first time.

Subban topped the league's defencemen with 11 goals and 27 assists. Letang finished second in the scoring race among defencemen despite missing more than a quarter of the season. Suter of Madison, Wis., ranked second among players at his position in assists (28) and third in points (32).

Members of the Professional Hockey Writers' Association submitted ballots at the end of the regular season. The winner will be announced during the Stanley Cup Finals.

The finalists for the Vezina Trophy for top goaltender are announced Wednesday.

Quote of the Day

This team has been a real treat to say you've been the head coach of them. I'm extremely proud of this group ... after the disappointment of (the Game 6 loss) is digested, it's always a lot easier as a coach when your team has emptied its tank, and that team emptied its tank for me for three months.

— Senators coach Dave Cameron after getting eliminated in the first round by the Canadiens
