The James Norris Memorial Trophy is awarded annually to the NHL's top defensive player who demonstrates throughout the season the greatest all-round ability in the position. The trophy has been awarded 59 times to 25 different players since 1954, with P.K. Subban winning last year for the Montreal Canadiens.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, Duncan Keith of the Chicago Blackhawks is the clear favorite to win this year's James Norris Memorial Trophy at 20/21 odds. Zdeno Chara of the Boston Bruins has the next-best odds at 31/20 while Shea Weber of the Nashville Predators is the long shot at 4/1.

Keith won the award in 2009-10 and this is the second nomination of his career. He finished with six goals, 55 assists and 61 points in 79 games played for the Blackhawks, who came up just short of appearing in their third Stanley Cup in the past five years when they fell to the Kings in seven games in the Western Conference finals.

As for Chara, he won the James Norris Memorial Trophy in 2008-09 and this is sixth nomination. He scored 17 goals and finished with 23 assists for 40 points in 77 games for the Bruins, whose season fell shorter than expected after they lost to the Canadiens in five games.

This is Weber's third nomination for the James Norris Memorial Trophy although unlike the other finalists this year, he has yet to win the award. He scored 23 goals and added 33 assists for 56 points in 79 games for the Predators, who failed to make the postseason this year.

The winner of the 2014 James Norris Memorial Trophy will be announced tonight.
