The case for... Andrei Vasilevskiy

Bryan Burns makes the case for Andrei Vasilevskiy to become the first Bolts goaltender to win the Vezina Trophy

by Bryan Burns / TampaBayLightning.com

Four Tampa Bay Lightning players and coaches are up for honors at the 2019 NHL Awards in Las Vegas on June 19, tied with St. Louis for most in the League.

Victor Hedman tries to repeat as Norris Trophy winner after becoming the first Bolt to claim the award last season.

Nikita Kucherov makes a strong case for the Hart Trophy and the Ted Lindsay Award, given annually to the League's regular season MVP as voted by the Professional Hockey Writers Association and the NHL Players Association, respectively.

Andrei Vasilevskiy is in Las Vegas for a second-straight season with hopes to bring home the Vezina Trophy after finishing third in voting a year ago.

And Jon Cooper will be hard to pass up for the Jack Adams Award as the NHL's top coach considering he led the Lightning to 62 regular season wins, tied with the 1995-96 Detroit Red Wings for the most all-time in League history.

In the coming days, we'll make the case why each is worthy of his respective award.

Up next…Andrei Vasilevskiy
