1. Kris Letang

Letang had a monster game on Tuesday night against the Winnipeg Jets with five assists. He also had two more helpers on Friday in New Jersey. Letang sits just three points back of Calgary’s Mark Giordano for the top spot in points amongst defensemen.

This is easily becoming Letang’s best season in the NHL, and if he keeps up this style of play, he will be in contention for the Norris Trophy.
