Carey Price won the Vezina Trophy as the league’s best goaltender, but when the league released the full voting, there was a fun tidbit. Caps netminder/awesome-beard-grower Braden Holtby finished fourth in total voting, two points away from getting a free trip to Las Vegas. Holtby got seven second place and five third place votes.

Braden Holtby finished 4th in Vezina Trophy voting. No first-place votes, but seven second-place votes, more than Dubnyk.

Just as a reminder, Holtby was dominant last season, finishing first in total saves (1887), second in wins (41), second in shutouts (9), and seventh in save percentage (.923).
How did we feel about his fourth-place finish? Glad you asked.
Braden Holtby could not be here tonight to accept his Vezina Trophy because THIS AWARD SHOW IS A FRAUD
