Could Tukio win Most Improved?


Recommended Posts

It's been an up and down season for Tuomas Tukio. He didn't know what to expect when he landed in Quebec City in the off-season when traded from Helsinki where he played for 6 seasons. Tukio has been one of the best goalies of the past 7 seasons now, but it's resulted in no individual recognition. No doubt Tukio takes a lot of criticism around the league, but he's never been an outspoken player in the league.


After reading another thread, I got wondering if Tukio had a spot on the Most Improved ballot? There's only been one goalie to win the award and it was just last season. I know goalie stats aren't as nice as goals/points, but a gain of even 0.001 in the SV% category is really good, but doesn't look as good as a goal does when comparing stats. Anyway here are the stats, I don't know who else is in contention and there could be 5 other players more deserving for all I know.



39-21-4 0.921SV% 2.35GAA 3SO 20/26 Penalty Shots



43-19-1 0.930SV% 1.82GAA 13SO 26/29 Penalty Shots


+4 wins, +0.009SV% -0.53GAA, +10SO, +13% PS save%


To be honest though, Connor Low for Most Improved.
