NEW YORK (WFAN) – Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist is in the running for yet another honor, as the Swede is a finalist for the Ted Lindsay Award, formerly the Lester B. Pearson Award.

The Ted Lindsay Award, which is voted on by the NHL Players Association, is awarded to the league’s most outstanding player in the regular season.

The three finalists for the Ted Lindsay Award are the same finalists for the Hart Trophy. Lundqvist’s competition for the award, again, is the Lightning’s Steven Stamkos and the Penguins’ Evgeni Malkin.

Lundqvist was brilliant in goal for New York this season, going 39-18 and posting eight shutouts.

Is Lundqvist deserving of the award over Steven Stamkos and Evgeni Malkin? Get the debate started in the comments section below…
