Unexpected Ranking for Bruins Defenseman in Norris Trophy Voting

During the NHL Awards on Monday night, several Boston Bruins players received accolades for their outstanding performances in the regular season.

Patrice Bergeron secured his sixth Selke Award for his exceptional defensive skills as a forward.

Linus Ullmark claimed his first Vezina Trophy, recognizing him as the top goalie of the season, while the Bruins' head coach, Jim Montgomery, won the Jack Adams Award for his coaching prowess.

However, it was almost a total of four awards for the Bruins. David Pastrnak attended the event but narrowly missed out on the Hart Trophy and Ted Lindsay Award, both won by Connor McDavid of the Edmonton Oilers.

Additionally, Bruins defenseman Hampus Lindholm surprised many by finishing fourth in the Norris Trophy voting, won by Erik Karlsson.

Lindholm's impressive performance in his first full season with the Bruins, recording 10 goals, 43 assists, and leading the league with a plus-49 rating, earned him this recognition, overshadowing expectations for Charlie McAvoy's candidacy.
