NEW YORK (AP) - Montreal’s Carey Price, Minnesota’s Devan Dubnyk and Nashville’s Pekka Rinne are the finalists for the Vezina Trophy as the NHL’s top goalie.
The 30 NHL general managers submitted ballots at the conclusion of the regular season, with the top three vote-getters designated as finalists Friday. The winner will be announced June 24 during the NHL awards ceremony in Las Vegas.
Price led the NHL in wins (44), goals-against average (1.96) and save percentage (.933), becoming the first goalie to top the league in all three categories since Ed Belfour with Chicago in 1990-91. Price also had a career-high nine shutouts.
Dubnyk set a franchise record with 38 straight starts following a trade with Arizona, going 27-9-2 with a 1.78 GAA, .936 save percentage and five shutouts for Minnesota.
Rinne was 41-17-6 in 64 appearances. He tied for second in the NHL in wins, was third in goals-against average (2.18) and was seventh in save percentage (.923).
