Jacob Markstrom has been named one of the three finalists for the 2022 Vezina Trophy.
The Vezina Trophy is awarded to the top regular-season goaltender. Two other goalies were nominated, New York Rangers goalie Igor Shesterkin and Juuse Saros of the Nashville Predators.
Over the regular season and in his second year with the Flames, Markstrom had a record of 37 wins, 15 losses and 9 overtime losses with a 2.22 goals-against average and a .922 save percentage. He had a league-leading nine shutouts.
Markstrom is an NHL Awards finalist for the first time. He is the first Flames netminder voted a Vezina Trophy finalist since Miikka Kiprusoff in 2006-07 and is aiming to become the second winner in franchise history, following Kiprusoff in 2005-06.
