26-year-old Russian goalkeeper of the New York Rangers Igor Shesterkin spoke about winning the nomination for the best goaltender of the 2021/2022 season in the NHL.
“I am honored to be here. I would like to note right away that both Saros and Markström are simply incredible goalkeepers, and each of them deserved to receive this award and stand in my place.
I am very pleased to play for such a club, just an incredible feeling. I would like to thank all the fans, because all this was my dream. I don't know where I would be without your support, my parents and the Rangers leadership. And, of course, many thanks for the support of my beautiful wife. Unfortunately, she couldn't be here tonight as we're expecting a baby. Incredible year. Thanks to all!" - quotes the words of Shesterkin Forever Blues Shirts .
