NEW YORK -- Drew Doughty of the Los Angeles Kings is among the finalists for this year's Norris Trophy as the league's top defenceman.

Doughty joins Mike Green of the Washington Capitals and Duncan Keith of the Chicago Blackhawks as the nominees.

Doughty, 20, is vying to become the second-youngest Norris Trophy winner in NHL history. Bobby Orr was 20 years three months of age when he won the first of his record eight Norris Trophy titles.

Doughty was ranked third among NHL defencemen in scoring with 59 points, tied Shea Weber for the league lead with 16 goals and was first in game-winning goals (five).

Green, the runner-up to Boston's Zdeno Chara for last year's Norris Trophy, led all defenceman in goals (19) and points (76), assists (57) and power-play goals (10). Green also anchored the NHL's top power play as Washington scored a league-high 79 goals with the man advantage.

Keith appeared in all 82 regular-season games for the third time in his five-year NHL career. Keith registered career highs in goals (14), assists (55) and points (69), finishing behind Green among NHL defencemen in assists and points.

The winner will be announced June 23.
