Tuukka Rask Named Vezina Trophy Finalist



BOSTON, MA
- The NHL announced today that Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask has been named one of three finalists for the 2013-14 Vezina Trophy. The Vezina Trophy is awarded annually "to the goaltender adjudged to be the best at his position.” The other finalists for the award are Ben Bishop of the Tampa Bay Lightning and Semyon Varlamov of the Colorado Avalanche.

Rask finished the regular season establishing career bests in shutouts (7), wins (36) and games played (58). His shutout total led all NHL goaltenders while his 36 wins ranked fifth. Rask also posted a 2.04 goals against average (fourth in the NHL) and his .930 save percentage was second only to Minnesota's Josh Harding (.933 in 29 games). Rask surrendered two or less goals in 38 of his 58 appearances in the 2013-14 regular season.

This marks Rask's first nomination for the Vezina Trophy.

The 6'2'', 185-pound native of Tampere, Finland was drafted by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft and was acquired by Boston on June 24, 2006 in exchange for Andrew Raycroft.

General Managers of all 30 NHL clubs submitted ballots for the Vezina Trophy at the conclusion of the regular season, with the top three vote-getters designated as finalists.
