Puck possession has Wild's Suter leading Norris race

Tuesday, 11.25.2014 / 3:00 AM / Trophy Tracker

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

Ryan Suter has led the NHL in time on ice per game for each of the past two seasons.

Suter's statistics, both "advanced" and "traditional," beyond the time on ice, left questions about whether or not he was really having the impact of an elite defenseman. His puck possession stats were mediocre, especially last season when Wild coach Mike Yeo didn't give him a high percentage of defensive zone starts.
