Bishop, Holtby and Quick named Vezina Trophy finalists

Thursday April 28th, 2016

The NHL announced the three finalists for the 2016 Vezina Trophy, which is awarded to the league's best goalkeeper.

Ben Bishop of the Tampa Bay Lightning, Braden Holtby of the Washington Capitals and Jonathan Quick of the Los Angeles Kings are up for the award.

Holtby may be considered the favorite for the award after finishing the regular season with a .922 save percentage and tying Martin Brodeur’s single-season wins record with 48 wins.

Bishop recorded a career-high and franchise record with 40 victories in 2014-15 and followed that up with a 35 win season in 2016. He set a career-high of 2.06 goals-against averaged and ranked second with a .926 save percentage.

Quick's 40 victories this season made him the first Kings goaltender to do so, breaking the previous franchise record he set. His 1,671 saves ranked fifth.

The winner will be announced June 22 during the 2016 NHL Awards in Las Vegas. NHL general managers will vote on the award.
