MILLER, BRODEUR, BRYZGALOV NAMED NOMINEES FOR VEZINA TROPHY

Martin Brodeur is a finalist for the Vezina Trophy for the ninth time.

The New Jersey Devils goaltender was uneviled as a nominee for the award Monday along with Ilya Bryzgalov of the Phoenix Coyotes and Ryan Miller of the Buffalo Sabres.

The winner will be unveiled during the NHL awards show in Las Vegas on June 23.

The Vezina Trophy is awarded to the league’s best goaltender and is voted on by the 30 general managers.

Brodeur is a four-time Vezina winner and led all goaltenders in games (77), victories (45) and shutouts (nine) this season.

Bryzgalov had a breakthrough year, posting career-best totals in victories (42), games (69), shutouts (eight), goals-against average (2.29) and save percentage (.920). He helped the Coyotes set franchise records for wins and points in a season.

Miller was second in the league with a 2.22 GAA and .929 save percentage while winning 41 games. The American was named MVP of the Olympic tournament and posted a 9-2-1 record after winning a silver medal in Vancouver.

    Miller wins it easily.

    Brodeur is a likely the greatest of all time, but this was not his season. He should even be nominated. It was an above average year but Names like Anderson, maybe Vokoun or even Tuuka Rask should come before him. im sure u can think of a few more.

    looks like he got a nomination based on his reputation.

    though i agree, its Ryan Miller's trophy to lose. Its not even close this year

    1st in wins
    3rd in GAA
    13th save percentage at a solid .916
    1st in shutouts

    I say he is deserving of a nomination.
