NHL William M. Jennings Trophy Winners

Goalkeepers who have surrendered fewest goals since 1982

NHL.com @NHL

The William M. Jennings Trophy is an annual award given to the goalkeeper(s) having played a minimum of 25 games for the team with the fewest goals scored against it. Winners are selected based on regular-season play. 

Previously, the Vezina Trophy was awarded on these merits (1946-81). A total of six goaltenders have won both the Jennings and Vezina Trophies in the same season. Calgary's Miikka Kiprusoff and Boston's Tim Thomas have done so in recent seasons, while four others have won both trophies on two separate occasions -- Patrick Roy, Martin Brodeur, Ed Belfour and Dominik Hasek.

The Jennings Trophy was presented in 1981-82 by the National Hockey League's Board of Governors to honor the late William M. Jennings, longtime governor and president of the New York Rangers and one of the great builders of hockey in the United States.
