The award was voted on by league coaches, players and media members.

The 23-year old Finland native helped the team to a 25-6-3 regular season record, the best in franchise history.

He was first in the league with his 25 wins and seven shutouts, and fourth with a .927 save percentage.

The goaltender also earned First Team All-Star honors last week.

The 2014 Minnesota Wild draft pick skated in five NHL games this season before returning to the AHL.
