The Tampa Bay Lightning have been the best team in the NHL for the last two seasons. Tampa Bay has won back-to-back Stanley Cup Finals after their ignominious four game sweep at the hands of Columbus in the first round of the 2018-19 NHL Playoffs. Andrei Vasilevskiy has been a big part of that success, and there is good value in Vasilevskiy to win his second Vezina Trophy.

  • Igor Shesterkin (NY Rangers) -325
  • Jacob Markstrom (Calgary) +800
  • Andrei Vasilevskiy (Tampa Bay) +1100
  • Frederik Andersen (Carolina +1100
  • Juuse Saros (Nashville) +2000
  • Sergei Bobrovsky (Florida) +2500
  • Jack Campbell (Toronto) +2800
  • Ilya Sorokin (NY Islanders) +2800
  • All Other Players +5000 or More

Igor Shesterkin is the odds-on favorite to be named this year’s Vezina Trophy winner. Shesterkin has been fantastic in net for the New York Rangers this season, posting a 28-6-3 record with a 1.93 GAA and a .942 save percentage. He has stood on his head in the Rangers’ last two games, and that currently has New York tied with Pittsburgh for second place in the Metropolitan Division. However, there isn’t much value left with Shesterkin at this price as he was -150 to win the Vezina Trophy last week.

Calgary is currently leading the Pacific Division thanks in large part to the play of Jacob Markstrom. The Flames’ top goaltender boasts a 2.14 GAA and a .926 save percentage. Markstrom has caught lightning in a bottle though as this is easily the best season of his career. He was drafted in 2008, and his previous best GAA was a 2.63 mark during the 2016-17 season with Vancouver.

That’s part of why Andrei Vasilevskiy is so tempting with odds of 11-1 to win the Vezina Trophy. Vasilevsky is the only goalie with 30 wins this season. His 2.33 GAA and .920 save percentage aren’t elite, but this is a Tampa Bay team that trusts the reigning Conn Smythe winner and doesn’t play a defensive system with so much offensive firepower on the roster. Vasilevskiy made arguably the best save of the season on Sunday night, and he gives us more highlight reel moments than any goaltender since the legendary Dominik Hasek.
