Winnipeg Jets goalie Connor Hellebuyck a Vezina finalist

No surprise that 37 has been named a finalist for top goalie in the NHL.

For the fourth time in his NHL career goalie Connor Hellebuyck has been named a finalist for the Vezina award as top goalie in the NHL. He won for the first time in 2020 and was a finalist in 2018, 2023 and now in 2024.

This should really come as no surprise as he put up ridiculous numbers again this season as is the presumptive frontrunner for this award.

This was part of the release from the team:

“finished top-five among NHL goaltenders in wins (2nd: 37), shutouts (T-5th: 5), save percentage (2nd: .921), goals-against average (4th: 2.39), games played (3rd: 60), shots against (2nd: 1,798), saves (2nd: 1,656) and minutes (3rd: 3,567). The Commerce, Michigan native backstopped the Jets to second place in the Central Division and won the Williams Jennings Trophy as the goaltender (min. 25 GP) on the team allowing the fewest regular season goals.”

He is going up against the Panthers Sergei Bobrovsky and the Canucks Thatcher Demko.
