Finalists for the Norris Trophy include Hedman, Josi, and Makar.

It was announced on Monday that Victor Hedman, Roman Josi, and Cale Makar were finalists for the Norris Trophy.

The award is presented yearly to the defender who has shown the highest overall skills during the season. The winner will be revealed during the Conference Finals

Hedman was a finalist for the sixth year in a row, winning in 2017-18 and finishing third the last three. The 31-year-old helped the Lightning  reach the playoffs for the seventh time in nine seasons.

"It's a fantastic honour," Hedman added. "Obviously, the team award is the most important, but individual acknowledgment is always fantastic. 

Playing for our squad is an honour, and I wouldn't be here without my teammates. This company and my coworkers owe me everything.

You know he's explosive. 20+ goals, nearly 30. It is not simple for defenders."
Last season, Adam Fox of the NY Rangers earned the Norris Trophy.
