Ok, I feel a little silly, but who is Vezina?
Do not feel silly! Vezina, in this case, is the name of the trophy for the best goaltender of the previous season, as voted by the General Managers of all teams.
Georges Vezina, which the trophy is named for, was a Canadiens goalie in the early 20th century who was as wee as he was badass (seriously he was 5′6″. AND BADASS. Please look him up and enjoy his badass stare. Crane Goals.), and was named one of the 100 best players in the NHL’s 100 year history last year. (Cue me biting my tongue really hard about oversight on that list)
