It appears the voters went with pure scoring lines. Fox put up 8-34-42 with the Rangers and was clearly their best defenseman. He was the only defenseman to put up strong offensive and defensive numbers for the entire season. Fox was steady all year when the focus shifted to Quinn Hughes (8-45-53) and Cale Makar (12-38-50).
Dominik Kubalik put up 30-16-46 with Chicago while shooting a whopping 19%. There’s the sexiness of a 30-goal season that appeals to voters.
Perhaps this is just homerism, but it seems Adam Fox was snubbed as a Calder finalist.
