"Thatcher Demko, Vancouver Canucks

Demko (35-14-2, 2.45 goals-against average, .918 save percentage, five shutouts) set career bests in wins, GAA, save pct. and shutouts, all coming in just 51 starts, as the Canucks won their first division title since 2012-13 and posted the third-highest standings points total (109) in their 53 NHL seasons. His 35 wins tied for the fifth-most in franchise history, surpassed only by Roberto Luongo (3X: 47, 40, 38) and Kirk McLean (38). He was nearly unbeatable in midseason, posting an 18-2-1 record over a 21-game span from Dec. 8 - Feb. 15. His final win of that streak was his 30th of the season (30-9-1 in 40 GP) becoming the fifth active goaltender to reach the 30-win mark in 40 games or fewer. Demko placed among the elite in NHL Edge tracking data, posting the second-best save percentage for high-danger shots (.845). The League average was .788. He is a first-time Vezina Trophy finalist and is vying to become to the first Canucks goaltender to capture the honor." The NHL added in a post on their official website.

While it hasn't been officially announced yet, the National Hockey League is expected to hold their Awards show in Las Vegas on June 27th, one day before the start of the 2024 Entry Draft.
