National Hockey League (NHL) William M. Jennings Trophy Information


The William M. Jennings Trophy is an annual ice hockey award given to the goalkeeper(s) having played a minimum of 25 games for the team with the fewest goals scored against it in regular-season play. The Jennings Trophy was donated by the NHL's board of governors and first presented at the conclusion of the 198182 season. It is named in honor of the late William M. Jennings, who was a longtime governor and president of the New York Rangers. Until the 198081 season, the Vezina Trophy was awarded to the goaltender(s) of the team allowing the fewest number of goals during the regular season. It was recognized that this system often meant the trophy went to the goaltender of the better team rather than the individual and hence the change was made to offer the Vezina to the most outstanding goaltender, as voted by the NHL General Managers. The William M. Jennings Trophy was created as a replacement and is awarded to the goaltender(s) playing for the team with the fewest goals against.
