This, perhaps, was the easiest one to pick.
New York Rangers goaltender Igor Shesterkin was named winner of the Vezina Trophy during the NHL awards ceremony on Tuesday for his incredible work this season.
Without him, the Rangers likely wouldn't have made the Stanley Cup final. Shesterkin had an incredible season in Manhattan, leading all goalies in save percentage (.935) and goals-against average (2.07) while posting a 36-13-4 record.
At 5-on-5, his .935 save percentage was incredible, while his 23.71 goals saved above average was an incredible 23.71, per Natural Stat Trick.
This was Shesterkin's third year in the NHL, but first proper year leading the Rangers in an 82-game season. At 26, he's got lots of incredible hockey still to come -- including another few Vezina Trophies likely in his future.
Jusse Saros and Jacob Markstrom were finalists for the award, with both looking for their respective first Vezina Trophies.
