Player Outlook

Victor Hedman absolutely exploded in 2016-17. He dominated offensively, picking up 72 points -- that's 17 more than his career best. He clicked with Nikita Kucherov on the power play and ended up leading all NHL blueliners in power-play production (33 points). Hedman is the complete package -- skating, scoring, defense and leadership. Those 72 points were second best from the blue line in 2016-17 and good enough for a tie for 14th overall in the NHL. Hedman's Norris Trophy nomination was well-deserved and shouldn't be his last.

Player News
  • Hedman needed four stitches to repair a nasty gash near his left eye after his visor broke in half during Friday's 8-1 win over Italy at the World Championship, reports CBC.ca. Hedman came close to damaging his eye. The collision at center ice sliced the visor in half and left him with a deep cut mere millimeters from the eye socket. Hedman should be fine.

  • Hedman was named as a finalist for the Norris Trophy, given annually to the league's top defender. "I'm extremely humbled and honored," Hedman told the Tampa Bay Times. He's coming off a career season, setting highs for goals (16), assists (56) and points (72). Hedman is up against Brent Burns (Sharks) and Erik Karlsson (Senators).

  • Hedman moved into second in scoring among defensemen with a goal and an assist Sunday in a 4-2 win over Buffalo. Yep, he's one better than Erik Karlsson (71) and just four fewer than Brent Burns (76). Hedman should get a nomination for the Norris for his performance this season.

  • Hedman set up three goals -- one on the power play -- in a 4-1 win over Toronto on Thursday night. Hedman now sits alone in third in the NHL in assists with 55 -- yes, overall, not just defenders. He's the top of the helper heap from the blue line, too. Only Connor McDavid and Nicklas Backstrom have been more prolific setup men this season. And don't look now, but Hedman is just one point shy of tying Erik Karlsson for second in scoring from the back end. This guy will be vying for a Norris.

  • Hedman recorded three assists -- two on the power play and the other on the game-clinching goal -- over 29:20 of ice time during Monday's overtime win against Chicago. Hedman is in the midst of a career-best showing, having stepped up his offensive game to the tune of 15 goals, 50 assists and 153 shots. His 31 power-play points are especially impressive, and while it seems like the 26-year-old defenseman has been around forever, he's still in the heart of his offensive prime. Being attached to a prolific offense helps his fantasy floor, and this campaign has established his position among the NHL's elite defensemen entering 2017-18.
