Not long after capturing the Norris Trophy in 2010, Duncan Keith took a look at the names attached to it and something stood out to the Blackhawks defenseman. “I was kind of surprised to see some of the players who have only won it once,” Keith said Tuesday at the NHL Awards in Las Vegas. “There are some really good players, a lot of guys I grew up idolizing. It goes to show that there are a lot of good defensemen who play in the league and it’s tough to win.” Keith’s name will now appear twice after the veteran captured his second Norris, given to the NHL’s top defenseman. The veteran finished with 1.033 voting points -- including 68 first-place nods -- from the Professional Hockey Writers’ Association to easily out-distance fellow finalists Zdeno Chara of the Bruins and the Predators’ Shea Weber.
