FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:  APRIL 22, 2017

 

Bobrovsky is a finalist for the second time after winning the award in 2013

 

COLUMBUS, OH – For the second time in his career, Columbus Blue Jackets goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky is a finalist for the Vezina Trophy, given annually to the National Hockey League’s most outstanding goaltender as voted by league general managers, the club and NHL announced tonight.  He won the award following the 2012-13 season.  Braden Holtby of the Washington Capitals and Carey Price of the Montreal Canadiens are the other two finalists. 

 

Bobrovsky posted a 41-17-5 record, 2.06 goals-against average, .931 save percentage and seven shutouts in 63 games this season, leading the NHL in GAA and SV%, while ranking third in wins and shutouts (tied).  Along the way, he won 14-straight games from November 29 to January 3, tying the second-longest winning streak in NHL history.  He was named the NHL’s First Star for the month of December (12-0-0, 1.75 GAA, .939 SV%) and Second Star in March (9-1-1, 1.09 GAA, .967 SV%) and posted three-straight shutouts on March 2 vs. Minnesota, Mar. 5 at New Jersey and March 7 vs. New Jersey to tie a club record.  He also made his NHL All-Star Game debut at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles in January.
The 28-year-old native of Novokuznetsk, Russia won the Vezina Trophy in 2012-13 after going 21-11-6 with a 2.00 GAA, .932 SV% and four shutouts in 38 games.  Since arriving in Columbus from the Philadelphia Flyers in a June 2012 trade, he has gone 139-84-20 with a 2.36 GAA, .923 SV% and 19 shutouts in 247 games.
Bobrovsky is the first two-time finalist of a major NHL award and the second Blue Jackets goaltender to be so recognized.  Steve Mason finished second in the voting to winner Tim Thomas of the Boston Bruins in 2008-09.  Minnesota’s Niklas Backstrom was the third finalist that season.
The 2017 NHL Awards and NHL Expansion Draft will celebrate the League’s top talent from the 2016-17 season and reveal the initial roster of the League’s 31st team, the Vegas Golden Knights, on Wednesday, June 21, at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.  The event will be televised live in the United States on NBCSN at 8 p.m. ET.

Werenski joins Toronto’s Auston Matthews and Winnipeg’s Patrik Laine as finalists for top rookie award
COLUMBUS, OH – Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman Zach Werenski is among three finalists for the Calder Memorial Trophy, given annually to the National Hockey League’s most outstanding rookie as voted on by the Professional Hockey Writers’ Association, the club and NHL announced tonight.  Center Auston Matthews of the Toronto Maple Leafs and right wing Patrik Laine of the Winnipeg Jets are the other two finalists.

 

Werenski, 19, led all rookie NHL defensemen in scoring with 11 goals and 36 assists for 47 points with 14 penalty minutes and a +17 plus/minus rating in 78 games this season.  His point total also stood seventh in overall rookie scoring, was 13th among all NHL defensemen, set a franchise record for points by a rookie and was the second-highest total by a blueliner in club history (51-James Wisniewski, 2013-14).  Historically, he tallied the sixth-most points by a teenage rookie defenseman in NHL history.
Columbus’ first pick, eighth overall, in the 2015 NHL Draft, Werenski played two seasons at the University of Michigan from 2014-16 before joining the Lake Erie Monsters, the Blue Jackets’ American Hockey League affiliate, in April 2016.  He tallied 5-9-14 in 17 playoff games, recording the most assists and points by an 18-year-old in the history of the Calder Cup Playoffs.  He finished second among AHL defensemen in playoff scoring to help the Monsters capture the Calder Cup championship.
Werenski is the third player in Blue Jackets history to be named a Calder Memorial Trophy finalist, joining goaltender Steve Mason and forward Rick Nash.  Mason won the award following the 2008-09 season, while Nash was a finalist along with Detroit’s Henrik Zetterberg in 2002-03 when St. Louis defenseman Barret Jackman was selected the winner.
The 2017 NHL Awards and NHL Expansion Draft will celebrate the League’s top talent from the 2016-17 season and reveal the initial roster of the League’s 31st team, the Vegas Golden Knights, on Wednesday, June 21, at T-Mobile Arena.
The event will be televised live in the United States on NBCSN at 8 p.m. ET.
