Pekka Rinne is widely considered the MVP on the Nashville Predators this season – and rightfully so.

The Predators gatekeeper has a 2.00 GAA to go with a .929 save percentage en route to a 27-6-2 record to have some of the best numbers around the league.

Rinne received 5 first place votes to sweep the voting (the only award to do so) among Editor In Leaf staff.

Best of the Rest: Carey Price – Montreal (4 second place votes)
