ROGER FEDERER CONGRATULATES ROMAN JOSI ON NORRIS TROPHY WIN

Not long after winning the Norris Trophy, Nashville Predators defenceman Roman Josi was congratulated by tennis icon and fellow countrymen, Roger Federer.

“It’s Roger Federer here,” the tennis star said in a video message. “I wanted to congratulate Roman Josi on winning the Norris Trophy, best defensive player in the NHL. And I am a big hockey fan myself for a long, long time. And I just wanted to send my best regards all the way from Switzerland. He is the first Swiss man also to do so.”

Josi, 30, has said plenty of times that he idolizes Federer. It appears the respect is mutual, as Federer referred to himself as Josi’s biggest fan.

“And Roman’s also been a big fan of mine since over a long time. And now I know Roman for 10 years now. Today I am your biggest fan Roman. I am so happy for you, I am so proud of you and all the very best for your future.”



The Predators captain was named as the Norris Trophy winner on Monday, beating out Tampa Bay Lightning’s Victor Hedman along with Washington Capitals John Carlson. Josi led his team in scoring by nearly 20 points this season, posting 16 goals and 65 points in 69 games played.
