As hockey fans, we love to see plenty of action on the ice — meaning goals, goals, and more goals. However, there's something special about watching the world's greatest netminders put their all into a game and singlehandedly win it for their team.
The NHL does a great job of making sure these netminders' efforts are well documented, awarding the Vezina Trophy to the league's best goaltender in the regular season. As the season progresses, there'll be plenty of NHL player props to look through, but we'll also need to take a closer look at the vast futures market hockey offers.

Understanding NHL Vezina odds
Most sportsbooks will display odds in the American format as listed above. When the regular season is nearly finished and a consensus has emerged, you might see a player with a minus sign (-) ahead of his odds, like this:
- Igor Shesterkin -400
The (-) means that Shesterkin is the odds-on favorite, and a bettor would need to wager $400 to win $100. Other contenders in the Vezina race might have plus (+) odds to win.
- Jake Oettinger +650
Here, a bettor stood to profit $650 for every $100 wagered.
If American odds aren't your thing, simply use a tool like our odds converter to switch the odds to decimal or fractional format. Most online sportsbooks also give you the option to change the odds format that you see.
