Nashville Predators defenseman Roman Josi won his first Norris Trophy as the league's top blue-liner on Monday.

Josi amassed career highs in goals (16) and points (65) through 69 games this season to earn the award over Washington Capitals rearguard John Carlson and Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Victor Hedman.

The 30-year-old is the first Predators player in franchise history to win the award and the first Swiss-born player to capture an individual award.

Josi ranked second among blue-liners in even-strength points (42) and goals (12) while logging the third-most ice time among all players with an average of 25:47 per game.

Nashville locked up its award-winning defenseman to an eight-year, $72.47-million deal last October.
