Henrik Lundqvist is now a finalist for a third trophy. The NHLPA announced today that Lundqvist, Evgeni Malkin, and Steven Stamkos are the finalists for the Ted Lindsay award –formerly the Lester B. Pearson Award– for most outstanding player as voted on by the players. These three finalists should look familiar, as they are all finalists for the Hart Trophy as well. The Lindsay is voted on by the players, the Hart by the writers.
This makes Lundqvist a finalist for the Lindsay, the Hart, and the Vezina. There’s a chance he could take home a lot of hardware in June when the NHL announces the winners.
