P.K. Subban ushered in the post-Nicklas Lidstrom era by winning the Norris Trophy in 2013.
Subban's outstanding all-around play helped the Montreal Canadiens finish as the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference last season. It was also somewhat shocking, because Subban was largely viewed as an impressive offensive talent with some defensive deficiencies at the start of the season.
However, he became a responsible player on the defensive end without losing any of his offensive effectiveness and that enabled him to come away with the Norris Trophy.
Subban will be a candidate to win the Norris Trophy again, but he will have to hold off an outstanding group of defensemen. Here's our ranking of the top Norris Trophy candidates in 2013-14.
