Washington Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby is up for another major award. A week after being named a finalist for the Vezina Trophy as the league’s best goaltender, Holtby is also up for the Ted Lindsay Award, which is known as the player-voted MVP award.
Holtby posted a 48-9-7 record with three shutouts, a 2.20 goals-against average, and a .922 save percentage. He tied Martin Brodeur’s all-time single season wins mark in his final start of the season.
Since 1970-71, only three goaltenders have won the Lindsay Award including Carey Price (last season), Dominik Hasek, and Mike Luit.
