 Igor Shesterkin of the New York Rangers is the 2021-22 recipient of the Vezina Trophy, awarded “to the goaltender adjudged to be the best at his position,” as selected by NHL general managers.

A first-time Vezina Trophy finalist, Shesterkin is the third Rangers goaltender to win the Vezina under the current selection criteria (since 1981-82), joining Henrik Lundqvist (2011-12) and John Vanbiesbrouck (1985-86).

The Rangers netminder was a near-unanimous choice, receiving the first-place vote on 29 of the 32 ballots and the second-place selection on the three other ballots for 154 voting points. Jacob Markstrom of the Calgary Flames. who was named on 25 ballots in accumulating 53 points, finished second in the voting, followed by Juuse Saros of the Nashville Predators (32 points).

Shesterkin posted a League-leading 2.07 goals-against average and .935 save percentage, helping the Rangers (52-24-6) reach 110 points, the third-highest total in franchise history. He recorded the seventh-best save percentage among all NHL goaltenders since the statistic was first officially recorded in 1955-56 (min. 25 GP) and became the second Rangers netminder to top the save percentage chart, following Gump Worsley in 1957-58. He went 36-13-4 with six shutouts in 52 appearances, recording his 30th win of the season in his 41st game – the fewest games required in franchise history.
