Congratulations to Olie Kolzig! Olie won the Vezina as the League's best goaltender for the 1999-2000 season with 110 points, beating out second place finisher Roman Turek who had 79.
The Vezina is the Capitals' second in five years. Jim Carey won it for the 1995-1996 season. The trophy is voted on by the General Managers of the National Hockey League.
Olie's acceptance speach quieted the many boos of Toronto fans who were disappointed their hometown favorite, Curtis Joseph, did not win. Now Capitals fans look to the 2000-2001 as their Vezina-winner Olie Kolzig leads them to glory!
