Norris Trophy 2014: Duncan Keith named NHL's top defenseman

Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports

Duncan Keith is the only active NHL player that's won the Norris Trophy twice.

It was expected that the Norris Trophy would be a close race in 2014, but it really wasn't: Duncan Keith ran away with 68 first-place votes for the award, given annually to the NHL's top defenseman. Zdeno Chara of the Boston Bruins finished second in total points for the award, while Shea Weber of the Nashville Predators finished third.

Keith led all defensemen with 55 assists and ranked second with 61 points. Here's the full vote total, as tallied by the Professional Hockey Writers' Association. There are some weird votes in here, and in particular it's weird that Drew Doughty finished so low.
