NEW YORK (KMOX) - A St. Louis native is up for one of the National Hockey League’s season-ending awards.

Tampa Bay goaltender Ben Bishop is among the three finalists for the Vezina Trophy, given annually to the league’s best goalie, as selected by NHL general managers. The others are Boston’s Tuukka Rask and Colorado’s Semyon Varlamov.

Bishop set multiple franchise records in leading the Lightning to a second-place finish in the Atlantic Division.

The Chaminade H.S. graduate became the Lightning’s all-time leader for wins in a season with his 31st on Mar. 15 against New Jersey and finished the season ranked fourth in the NHL with 37.

Bishop also set a franchise mark in save percentage (.924) and tied for fourth in the League in shutouts (five).

The NHL award winners will be announced June 24th.
