Best odds to win the Norris Trophy

Best value: Karlsson (-275)

After producing just 55 points over the past two seasons, it seemed fair to assume Karlsson's best days were behind him entering 2022-23.

Surprisingly, the San Jose Sharks star is on pace to shatter his career-high in points, and it's apparent that he's as dynamic an offensive force as ever.

Karlsson leads all defencemen in points by a significant margin, which often has an outsized importance in determining who wins this award. He's also a feel-good story that could resonate with voters.

The Swede's biggest issues are that his work on the defensive end of the ice is less than spectacular and a series of injuries have resulted in him failing to top 56 games in any season since 2017-18.

Other Norris Trophy choices

Best value: Dahlin (+900)

Dahlin didn't look like much of a Norris candidate before the season, but his game has found a new level.

The 22-year-old is consistently lighting the lamp and posting rock-solid possession metrics while taking on a heavier defensive burden than he ever has before for the Buffalo Sabres.

Dahlin's scoring may slow down a touch, but he's at an age where his breakout feels legitimate — and his team looks more competent than expected. Right now he's well above a point per game and he's got more durability and defensive spine than Karlsson.

There's a reason the Sabres took him with the first overall pick in the 2018 draft, and his all-around game could result in a Norris win.

Player to watch: Morrissey (+800)

Morrissey entered the season without even earning Norris Trophy votes or clearing 37 points in a single campaign.

He's already obliterating that number and served as a crucial offensive engine for a strong Winnipeg Jets team. The 27-year-old has evolved as a power-play quarterback while retaining his defensive capabilities and producing excellent possession numbers.

Morrissey has always been a defenceman with a strong reputation, but he's rarely been considered the type of player capable of winning this award.

That could change this season if he finished strong — especially if he winds up leading his team in points. He did that for much of 2022-23 and it's still within reach if Kyle Connor cools off.
