NEW YORK (AP) -Los Angeles' Drew Doughty, Washington's Mike Green and Chicago's Duncan Keith are the finalists for the Norris Trophy, given to the NHL's top defenseman.
Doughty was third among defenders in scoring at 59 points, trailing Green (76) and Keith (69). Doughty, who turns 21 on Dec. 8, would become the second-youngest winner of the award - behind Bobby Orr (20 years, 3 months).
Green, runnerup to Zdeno Chara last year, led defensemen in goals (19) and scoring for the second straight season. He was also tops in assists (57) and power-play goals (10).
Keith had career highs in goals (14), assists (55) and points (69), finishing second to Green among defensemen in assists and points.
The winner will be announced June 23 during the NHL awards show in Las Vegas.
