Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Duncan Keith won the second Norris Trophy of his career on Tuesday, edging a potent group of finalists in the process.

The 30-year-old defenseman scored six goals and 55 assists for 61 points in 79 games, notching a +22 plus/minus. Those numbers aren’t far behind the sterling stats he produced in winning the 2010 Norris.

It couldn’t have been easy for voters. That being said, Keith actually beat finalists Shea Weber and Zdeno Chara by a pretty comfortable margin, as you can see from these results:

Pts. 1st-2nd-3rd-4th-5th
1. Duncan Keith, CHI 1033 (68-35-17-7-2)
2. Zdeno Chara, BOS 667 (21-39-22-19-17)
3. Shea Weber, NSH 638 (26-23-29-19-15)
4. Ryan Suter, MIN 351 (9-12-20-22-11)
5. Alex Pietrangelo, STL 304 (3-13-18-25-18)
6. Drew Doughty, LA 284 (8-6-17-18-23)
7. Erik Karlsson, OTT 70 (0-5-3-4-8)
8. Ryan McDonagh, NYR 53 (0-1-4-5-11)
9. Victor Hedman, TB 42 (1-1-0-5-10)
10. Mark Giordano, CGY 36 (1-0-2-3-7)
11. Matt Niskanen, PIT 36 (0-1-2-5-4)

More than a few people wondered why Drew Doughty wasn’t in the top three after some masterful playoff work, even if postseason production isn’t factored into voting. As it turns out, he wasn’t even in the top five.

Here’s a list of the Norris winners and the second highest vote-getters since 1990:
