GEORGES VEZINA

The Vezina Trophy is an annual award given to the goalkeeper adjudged to be the best at his position as voted by the general managers of all the BFHA clubs.

NOMINEES

The three nominees this year played a key role in helping their respective teams make the playoffs. One of the three led almost every significant goalie stat category. The nominees are...

Devan Dubnyk – Columbus Blue Jackets

Dubnyk was traded last year at the deadline from Buffalo to Columbus for Cory Schneider and helped the Blue Jackets on their finals appearance last year. He picked up where he left off last season, as he net himself 52W, in 70 Starts, running a 0.925 Sv% and a 2.18GAA while also collecting 2 shutouts. He’s been every bit as dominant this post-season, as the Blue Jackets find themselves one win away from winning the Toro Cup.

Braden Holtby – Colorado Avalanche

Holtby was amongst Colorado’s best player and helped them win a Toro Cup last year, and the President’s Trophy this season. They were bumped out in the 2nd round by the Chicago Blackhawks, but that doesn’t diminish the season Holtby had. In 68 games played, he won 53 games, and edged Dubnyk is Sv% and GAA by the smallest of margins. Braden’s  Save Percentage was 0.926 and he had a 2.16GAA with 3 shutouts this season.

Freddy Andersen – Florida Panthers

Freddy bounced around the last few seasons. He began his career as a backup in Dallas, then started last season for Tampa before moving over to the Florida for his 2nd full season where he over doubled his career best in Wins. In 72 starts, he got 48 Wins, with a Save Percentage of 0.922 and a GAA of 2.34. He had 3 shutouts and was consistently Florida’s best player, with the 2nd most Molson 3-Star Votes of any Goalie in the league, next to Mike Smith, who probably meant more to Arizona than Freddy even did to Florida.
