Minnesota Wild defenseman Jonas Brodin was snubbed on Monday when the Professional Hockey Writers' Association named its three finalists for the 2013 Calder Trophy for outstanding rookie.
Brodin's blue-line mate, however, wasn't snubbed on Tuesday.
Ryan Suter was named as one of three finalists for the James Norris Memorial Trophy, which is handed out every season to the defenseman that exhibits "the greatest all-around ability." Kris Letang of the Pittsburgh Penguins and P.K. Subban of the Montreal Canadians are the other two finalists.
Suter, fresh off signing a massive contract last offseason, tallied 32 points in 48 games while logging more than 27 minutes per game in his first season with the Wild.
