The talent at the goaltending position has never been at a higher level than it is in the NHL today, and the best will be competing for the Vezina Trophy as the NHL’s best goalie in 2021-22.
The Tampa Bay Lightning’s Andrei Vasilevskiy is the favorite at +380, with the two-time Stanley Cup winner the only player in triple digits. Vasilevskiy’s biggest challenge might be playing enough games, as head coach Jon Cooper is likely to leave him on the bench for backup Brian Elliott due to his massive workload the last two seasons.
It’s rare to see a player traded for performance issues as the second-favorite to win an NHL trophy, but that’s where things are with new Chicago Blackhawk Marc Andre-Fleury. In a partial salary dump, partial move for playoff failure, the Vegas Golden Knights moved on from the veteran in favor of Robin Lehner.
The third choice is Connor Hellebuyck of the Winnipeg Jets, who had a .916 and four shutouts in 45 games last season. The seven-year veteran is the backstop of a team that’s 45-1 to win the Stanley Cup, but if they end up hosting a home series in the playoffs, it’s likely Hellebuyck could be in the mix for the trophy.
