It was no big shocker at the 2022 NHL Awards when New York Rangers netminder Igor Shesterkin won the Vezina Trophy as the league’s top goaltender. But finishing second in balloting was Calgary Flames goaltender Jacob Markstrom.

Markstrom received votes from 25 of the NHL’s 32 general managers, who vote for the Vezina. He led the voting in second and third-place votes, but received zero first-place votes.
Markstrom had one of the best seasons by a Flames goaltender in franchise history. He went 37-15-9 with a 2.22 goals against average and a .922 save percentage with nine shutouts, finishing among the league leaders in every major goaltending category.
