RALEIGH, N.C. (WFLA) — Tampa Bay Lightning goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy is a finalist for the NHL’s Vezina Trophy, which is given annually to the league’s top goalie.

This is Vasilevskiy’s fourth consecutive nomination, having won the award in the 2018-19 season.
This season, Vasilevskiy led the NHL in victories with 31 in 42 starts.

The nomination also puts Vasilevskiy in rare territory, matching New Jersey’s Martin Brodeur, who was a finalist for the fourth straight time back in 2008.

The other two finalists this year are Marc-Andre Fleury of the Vegas Golden Knights and Philipp Grubauer of the Colorado Avalanche.
