Las Vegas, NV, United States (4E Sports) - The possible 2014-15 Vezina Trophy winners have been trimmed down to Carey Price of the Montreal Canadiens , Devan Dubnyk of the Minnesota Wild, and Pekka Rinne of the Nashville Predators.

The winner will be announced June 24 during the 2015 NHL Awards from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

The finalists for the award, given "to the goalkeeper adjudged to be the best at his position," is determined by votes from the 30 general managers at the conclusion of the regular season.

Price led the NHL in wins with 44, which was also a franchise record; goals-against average with 1.96; and save percentage.

Dubnyk backstopped the Wild to their third consecutive playoffs. He finished the season second in the NHL with a 2.07 goals-against average and .'9 save percentage. He also ranked fourth in shutouts with six and sixth in wins with 36.

Rinne helped the Predators to their first playoff berth since 2012. He finished the regular season with a 41-17-6 record in 64 appearances. He tied for second in the NHL in wins, ranked third in goals-against average with 2.18 and was seventh in save percentage.
