Karlsson poised for a repeat?



Watching Erik Karlsson play hockey this season has been a pleasure for anyone who has had the opportunity. The growth in his game from a year ago has been remarkable for two reasons:

1 He has now launched himself into the echelon of the best of the best.
2) He is visibly improved from a year ago despite being the reigning Norris Trophy winner.

Seeing advances in a player's game like that are few and far between, particularly when you're already at the level Karlsson has reached. The way he controls play and jumps into the rush in games this season confirms his status as a truly elite player.

I brought you the NHL Network's early Vezina predictions earlier this afternoon so we'll follow it up with some Norris ones. If Anderson and Karlsson can keep up their pace throughout the season they would be just the third tandem to win a Vezina and a Norris.
