The Vezina Trophy is awarded annually to the NHL's goaltender who is "adjudged to be the best at his position." At the end of each hockey season, NHL general managers vote to determine the winner and the honor is named after Georges Vezina, a goaltender of the Montreal Canadiens from 1910 until 1925. This year's trophy will be announced on June 24.
