TORONTO, April 30 (UPI) -- Martin Brodeur of New Jersey, the first goaltender to win 40 games in four consecutive seasons, has been named a finalist for both the Vezina and Hart Trophies.
Last season, Jose Theodore of the Montreal Canadiens won both trophies.
Brodeur also is the only goalie to win 35 games in seven straight seasons, but never has won the Vezina, which is given to the outstanding goaltender. This season, he led the league in victories, going 41-23-9 with a 2.02 goals-against average, and has been a finalist for the Vezina Trophy three other times.
Marty Turco of the Dallas Stars, who set an NHL modern-era record with a 1.72 GAA, and Ed Belfour of the Toronto Maple Leafs are the other finalists for the Vezina.
Belfour won the Vezina in 1990-91 and 1992-93 with Chicago, and spent five seasons in Dallas before going 37-20-5 with a 2.26 GAA with the Leafs.
Forsberg had three points in the final game of the regular season to finish with 106, becoming the first Swede to capture the Art Ross Trophy. Naslund, his boyhood friend, finished second in points, recording career highs with 48 goals and 56 assists.
The Norris Trophy, which goes to the outstanding all-around defenseman, features a couple of familiar names.
The winner of the last two Norris Trophies, Nicklas Lidstrom of the Detroit Red Wings, joins the 1998-99 winner, Al MacInnis of the St. Louis Blues, and Derian Hatcher of the Dallas Stars, as finalists this year.
MacInnis, who has one of the most potent slap shots in the NHL, is a finalist for the sixth time, while Hatcher is nominated for the first time after ranking fifth in the league with a plus-37 rating as the Stars finished with the best record in the Western Conference.
Jacques Lemaire, who won a Stanley Cup with New Jersey in 1995, is a finalist for the Adams Award as the outstanding coach after guiding the Minnesota Wild to a playoff appearance in just their third season. Lemaire won the Adams Award for the 1993-94 season.
Columbus Blue Jackets left wing Rick Nash is the first player from his team to be a finalist for an NHL Award. Nash, Detroit left wing Henrik Zetterberg, and St. Louis defenseman Barret Jackman are the finalists for the Calder Trophy, which goes to the outstanding rookie.
New Jersey center John Madden, who had a career-high 41 points, is a finalist for the Selke Trophy, which goes to the outstanding defensive forward. Madden won it in 2000-01.
Dallas right wing Jere Lehtinen, a two-time winner, and Minnesota center Wes Walz are the other finalists.
Lidstrom also is a finalist for the fifth straight year for the Lady Byng Trophy, which is presented for sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct. Dallas center Mike Modano and Toronto right wing Alexander Mogilny are the other finalists.
All voting for the awards is conducted at the end of the regular season. The Hart, Norris, Selke, Calder, and Lady Byng Trophies are voted on by the Professional Hockey Writers' Association.
The NHL Broadcasters' Association votes for the Adams Award, and the league's general managers select the winner of the Vezina Trophy.
The winners of the awards will be announced June 12 in Toronto.
