Brodeur named Vezina Trophy finalist

Martin Brodeur has won the Vezina Trophy three times and will have a chance to make it four when the NHL's award winners are announced June 12 in Toronto.


newjerseydevils.com – Martin Brodeur has a shot at his fourth Vezina Trophy.

Brodeur has been named one of the finalists for the award which is handed out "to the goaltender adjudged to be the best at his position," the National Hockey League announced on Monday.

It is the eighth career nomination for Brodeur, who captured the trophy in 2003, 2004 and 2007. The 14-year veteran posted a 44-27-6 record with a 2.17 goals-against average, .920 save percentage and four shutouts in 2007-08. He ranked among the league's leaders in minutes played (first, 4,635), victories (second) and goals-against average (fifth).

This season also saw Brodeur become just the second goaltender in NHL history to reach the 500-win mark, following Patrick Roy (551). Brodeur ended the season with 96 career shutouts, seven shy of Terry Sawchuk's all-time record. He extended NHL records by registering his third consecutive and seventh career 40-win season, and 10th straight campaign of 70-or-more games played.

The 30 NHL General Managers submitted ballots for the trophy at the end of the regular season, with the top-three vote-getters announced as finalists. The winner will be announced Thursday, June 12 during the 2008 NHL Awards Television Special in Toronto, to be broadcast in the United States on Versus.

This year's other finalists were Evgeni Nabokov of the San Jose Sharks and Henrik Lundqvist of the New York Rangers.
