Former Pittsburgh Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury named finalist for Vezina Trophy

PITTSBURGH — Former Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury was named Tuesday as a finalist for the Vezina Trophy.

The award is given to the goalie voted the best at his position by NHL general managers.

It’s the first time in Fleury’s 17-year career that he has been a finalist. The 36-year-old, who now plays for the Vegas Golden Knights, finished the 2020-21 regular season with a 26-10-0 record. His .928 save percentage and 1.98 goals against average were career bests.

The other finalists for the Vezina Trophy are the Colorado Avalanche’s Philipp Grubauer and the Tampa Bay Lightning’s Andrei Vasilevskiy.

Fleury and his teammate Robin Lehner were already announced as winners of the William M. Jennings Trophy.
