Tuukka Rask has taken the 2014 Vezina Trophy as the National Hockey League’s top goaltender.
The award comes on a special day – the eight-year anniversary to the day when the Boston Bruins acquired Rask from the Toronto Maple Leafs, as per Chris Johnston of Sportsnet. Rask finished the season with a league-leading seven shutouts and a .930 save percentage, which was second among goalies. He also recorded 36 wins in the regular season.
Here are the voting results for the award:
1. Tuukka Rask, BOS 103 (16-6-5)
2. Semyon Varlamov, COL 90 (9-13-6)
3. Ben Bishop, TB 32 (1-6-9)
4. Carey Price, MTL 26 (2-3-7)

7. Steve Mason, PHI 3 (0-1-0)
8. Sergei Bobrovsky, CBJ 1 (0-0-1)
