There’s a decidedly European feel to this year’s Vezina Trophy candidates.
Sergei Bobrovsky of the Columbus Blue Jackets, Henrik Lundqvist of the New York Rangers and Antti Niemi of the San Jose Sharks have been named finalists for the 2013 Vezina Trophy, awarded annually “to the goalkeeper adjudged to be the best at his position,” as voted by the general managers of the 30 NHL clubs.
Just a reminder that last summer the Flyers traded the prohibitive favorite to win the award for best goaltender in the league. Panic and carry on.
Bobrovsky's going to win the Vezina, and it won't be close. On that I think we can all agree.
