Ben Bishop - Dallas Stars (27-15-2)

Ben Bishop, goaltender of the Dallas Stars, had another supreme season. His final record ended at 27-15-2 in 46 games played. Bishop had a league-leading goals against average of .934 and league leading goals saved above average of 32.24. His regular goals against average for the 2019 campaign was 1.98 and he registered seven shutouts on the season - the most out of the three Vezina finalists.

Robin Lehner - New York Islanders (25-13-5)

Robin Lehner of the New York Islanders had a banner year after years of hardship with the Ottawa Senators and the Buffalo Sabres. This is his first Vezina nomination. Lehner, like Bishop, played 46 games this season and a win by either of them will mean the Vezina award goes to a goalie with the least amount of games played since 1984. Lehner finished his year with a goals against average of 2.13 and a save percentage of .930. He managed six shutouts this season.

Andrei Vasilevskiy - Tampa Bay Lightning (39-10-4)

The Tampa Bays Lightning’s Andrei Vasilevskiy finished third-overall in last years Vezina trophy voting and one could argue that the same outcome is quite likely. Vasilevskiy led all goaltenders this season in wins with 39 but fell short of his two Vezina-nominees in most other regarded statistics. Vasilevskiy’s regular season goals against average stood below both Bishop and Lehner at 2.40 and his save percentage was .925. Like Robin Lehner, Andrei Vasilevskiy registered six shutouts on the season.
