Duncan Keith is a finalist for two of the awards the NHL will hand out in Las Vegas on Tuesday night.
Keith, Boston’s Patrice Bergeron and San Jose’s Brent Burns are the three finalists for the 2013-14 NHL Foundation Player Award, presented to “an NHL player who applies the core values of hockey – commitment, perseverance and teamwork – to enrich the lives of people in his community.”
On Tuesday evening, the NHL will award the Norris Trophy to the 2013-14 James Norris Memorial Trophy, awarded “to the defense player who demonstrates throughout the season the greatest all-round ability in the position.”
This year’s finalists are Chicago’s Duncan Keith, Boston’s Zdeno Chara and Nashville’s Shea Weber.
On Monday, the Hockey Hall of Fame announced its Class of 2014: Peter Forsberg, Mike Modano, Rob Blake, Dominik Hasek, Pat Burns and Bill McCreary.
