Tuukka Rask was outstanding for the Boston Bruins during the 2019-20 regular season, but he was not voted as the NHL's best goaltender.
Hellebuyck received 19 first-place votes and totaled 123 voting points. Rask placed second, with 10 first-place votes and 99 points.

Hellebuyck certainly is a deserving winner of the prestigious award. The Jets netminder went 31-21-5 during the season with six shutouts, a .922 save percentage and a 2.57 goals-against average.
Rask had a 26-8-6 record with a league-best 2.12 GAA during the regular season, helping the Bruins on their road to the Presidents' Trophy. He opted out of the NHL's Toronto bubble during the B's first-round playoff series vs. the Carolina Hurricanes due to a family emergency.
Rask won his lone Vezina Trophy following the 2013-14 season.
