Age 35. Undrafted. (Previously) underrated. 96 per cent of first-place votes for the Norris Trophy. Mr. Everything for the #Flames. Mark Giordano. Incredible.

Mark Giordano was never drafted by an #OHL team. He was never drafted by an #NHL team. Now at 35 years of age, Giordano is a Norris trophy winner. #hardworkpaysoff #Flames
Mark Giordano is the 1st Flames player to win the Norris Trophy (best defensemen). Giordano takes home the award at the age of 35. The only other player to win their 1st Norris Trophy after turning 35 years old was Al MacInnis https://t.co/LyyejCa8i0
Awesome to see Mark Giordano win the Norris Trophy!
If my quick research is correct, he becomes the first Owen Sound Platers/@AttackOHL
alumni to win a major NHL Award. And he does it at the age of 35!
Defencemen to win the Norris Trophy at 35 or older: Nicklas Lidstrom (4 times between 2006-11), Doug Harvey (3 times between 1960-62), Al MacInnis (1999) & @NHLFlames
captain Mark Giordano (2019)
Mark Giordano played Midget @gthl for North York Rangers as a 2nd year Midget. Then for the Brampton Capitals never once worried about the race to get to the @nhl but he loved the game and was & is bound and determined to be great! #slowamdsteady #development #NeverGiveUp #Dream

Mark Giordano n’a jamais été drafté de sa vie, et pourtant cette saison personne n’a été meilleur défenseur que lui. #NHLAwards
Mark Giordano showed his appreciation for longtime skating coach Brad Wheeler by paying for him and his wife to fly to Las Vegas to witness the Flames captain being awarded the Norris Trophy as best defenseman in the NHL. Our @Dave_Stubbs
has the story.
I spoke w/ Brad Wheeler, Mark Giordano's passionate, 15-year skating coach, 24 hours before Giordano's #NHLAwards Norris win. Last night to me backstage, kissing miniature Norris: "I could lay down in my grave tonight & be happy. I can't dream this good." https://t.co/5vXBGNyWz9
