CHICAGO (CBSNewYork/AP) — Sergei Bobrovsky of the Columbus Blue Jackets has won the Vezina Trophy, given to the NHL’s top goaltender following a vote by league general managers.

“This is not my final stage,” the Russian said through a translator. “I can be better and I will get better.

Bobrovsky beat out Henrik Lundqvist of the New York Rangers and Antti Niemi of the San Jose Sharks for his first Vezina on Saturday. The Russian (21-11-6, 2.00 GAA, .932 save percentage and four shutouts) anchored Columbus’ late-season surge that nearly earned the club a playoff berth.

Lundqvist famously dropped an f-bomb on live television during last year’s NHL Awards ceremony in Las Vegas.

Pittsburgh’s Sidney Crosby took the Ted Lindsay Award, given to the league’s most outstanding player as voted by fellow members of the NHL Players’ Association. Crosby finished fourth in the NHL with 56 points despite missing 12 games because of injuries.

Florida’s Jonathan Huberdeau won the Calder Trophy, given to the NHL’s top rookie.

Voting for the awards was done before the playoffs began.
