Boeser's success is just a foregone conclusions so Hutton is the next big question when it comes to setting up our Stanley Cup dynasty One tangential point about Hutton I would like add: No Norris winners since 2000 came from the NCAA. This is just a function of the small sample size of giving one guy the award each year. Each guy has shown the ability to play solid defense while putting up points. This means putting up close to a PPG in the CHL or 0.5 PPG in a pro league. Hutton is absolutely in this range. But of course there are many busts who satisfy this same criteria. The other commonality is that Norris players tend to have a fairly early impact in the NHL. Very few stick as 18 year olds though. So spending time in the NCAA has not set Hutton back one bit. And when future Norris winners did stick with their NHL teams, they tended to score at a fairly low pace early on. Think 0.25 PPG. By this metric as well (which is obviously much more important than junior success), Hutton looks very good compared to this elite company. The reality is that we just don't know and will have to wait and see how the season goes. But as far as ruling Ben out from Norris potential, there is certainly no basis to do so yet and much more that points to the alternative.
