Tuukka Rask of the Boston Bruins was awarded the 2014 Vezina Trophy as the NHL's top goaltender as selected by the NHL General Managers. Rask received 16 of 30 first-place votes in order to edge runner up Semyon Varlamov of the Colorado Avalanche.
Rask backstopped the Bruins to an NHL-best 117 points with a sparkling 2.04 goals against average, .930 save percentage while posting seven shut outs. Rask's Vezina Trophy win marks the third time in six years that a Bruins goalkeeper has received the honour. Tim Thomas earned the award in 2009 and 2011.
