You would think that the biggest news in the Los Angeles Kings' world today would be the important Game 5 against the Vancouver Canucks that goes down tonight at 7pm. But no, instead everyone is talking about the announcement that 20 year old Drew Doughty has been nominated for the Norris Trophy, the annual award for being the NHL's best defenseman... also known as the Nicklas Lidstrom award.
Yup, this guy is one of the NHL's best defenseman.
Drew is the youngest to be nominated for the Norris since this guy was in 1968.
I have a feeling that Drew read Boys' Life growing up. And still does.
And of course, Drew Doughty is the first Kings defenseman to be nominated for a Norris Trophy since this guy won it in 1998.
Wait... are they saying "BOOO" or "DREEW"???
I thought that I would take a look back at some of the things I said about an 18 year old Drew Doughty during his first season with the Kings... back at the old Royal Half Blogspot blog. (Mainly because I've been too lazy to transfer everything over to here.) To see what this humble blogger said about Drew Doughty from the early days... check it out after the jump!!!
