Calder Trophy and Vezina Voting: John Klingberg 5th, No Votes For Kari Lehtonen
John Klingberg gets votes, but finished way behind the top candidates.
Dallas Stars rookie defenseman John Klingberg was not a finalist for the Calder Trophy, but he did receive quite a few votes. He ended up in 5th place, but in a distant 5th. He came in 450 plus votes behind Filip Forsberg for 5th place and almost 100 votes behind Aaron Akblad.
Some voting results are already being Tweeted out:
My Calder Ballot: 1. Aaron Ekblad; 2. Johnny Gaudreau; 3. Filip Forsberg; 4. Mark Stone; 5. John Klingberg— Greg Wyshynski (@wyshynski) June 25, 2015
This was a crowded Calder Trophy class, but Klingberg coming in 5th is pretty rough. I'm a bit surprised Mark Stone ended up coming in 2nd too. Congrats to Ekblad though.
The Vezina voting has just been released too. Carey Price picks up the Vezina.
The results here aren't too surprising. No votes for Kari Lehtonen. New York Rangers backup Cam Talbot inexplicably got a vote. Better than the Randy Carlyle vote I suppose.
