The NHL has announced that Henrik Lundqvist along with the Kings' Jonathan Quick and the Predators' Pekka Rinne have been named finalists for this year's Vezina Trophy as voted by the general managers of each of the 30 clubs.

The winner will be announced at the 2012 NHL Awards Show, June 20 at the Encore Theater at Wynn Las Vegas.

...a month ago I would have told you that Lundqvist was a layup for the Vezina, but with his struggles down the stretch and Quick's outstanding finish, I'm not so sure it's in the bag anymore.

...having said that, I think he pulls it out.

Speaking of the Lundqvist, no decision has been made by the NHL on if he will be fined for his comments after Game 6 regarding the controversial Chris Neil kick goal (via New York Post).

Finally, Lundqvist has advanced to the "Sweet Sixteen" in the EA Sports NHL 13 cover contest. He will take on the Senators Erik Karlsson in a first round match-up. Voting starts today and will run until May 10th.
