Quick named Vezina Trophy finalist
Jonathan Quick has been named as a finalist for the Vezina Trophy, along with Henrik Lundqvist of the New York Rangers and Pekka Rinne of the Nashville Predators. The Vezina is given “to the goalkeeper adjudged to be the best at his position,” and is voted upon by the NHL’s general managers. The winner will be announced at the NHL Awards on June 20 in Las Vegas.
Quick led the league with 10 shutouts, was second with a 1.95 goals-against average and was fifth with a .929 save percentage. Lundqvist had a 1.97 goals-against average and a .930 save percentage, while Rinne had a 2.39 goals-against average and a .923 save percentage. No goalie has ever won a Vezina Trophy while playing for the Kings.
