Despite missing time this year due to injury, Kris Letang finished the regular season tied for first in defenseman scoring. In just 35 games, Letang accumulated 38 points and showed why he's considered one of the league’s top defensemen.
 
In fact, before catching the injury bug the Montreal native was a frontrunner for the Norris Trophy and while missing 13 games may have hurt his chances for individual accolades, Letang will have a shot at the ultimate prize when the Penguins start the playoffs this week.
